Mental Health Case Definitions / Queries 5 A. Ising Good mental health indicates a better ability to fulfill a number of key functions and activities, including: the ability to learn, the ability to feel, express and manage a range of positive and negative emotions. If anybody is not showing this ability in a proper way then he needs an expert advice as living with the mental health is not easy. One can take the health insurance plans which help in covering the medical expenses. My neighbor also enrolled for the Mutual of Omaha health insurance at The Health Exchange Agency company.

Forum Friday 9/21/18 - Suicide Surveillance 8 E. Lamb My team is working on developing a self-harm and suicide-related syndrome definition, written in SAS code, for our surveillance system. I was wondering if any other jurisdictions have been working on converting the ISDS self-harm and suicide-related syndrome definition to SAS code? Thanks, Sarah

Electric Scooter Query 3 B. Yarnell Hi everyone, It looks like the CDC is looking at dockless scooter accidents in Austin Texas. It would be interested to hear how they used syndromic surveillance to look at the injuries.

Forum Friday 10/19/18 - Collaborations with Injury Surveillance? 4 E. Lamb I think identifying champions within your organization is a great place to start too. One resource I have learned from Amanda's presentation was the CDC Rape Prevention and Education map: https://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/rpe/states.html.  You can find her reference mentioned in the slide deck from the October NSSP CoP call.  It also helped knowing I could follow up with a speaker after the call to learn more about the resources shared in presentation where I was reminded of how to find this map.  I think this would have been a good place for us to start if we knew about this resource a few weeks ago.  Thanks Amanda for sharing!

Forum Friday 10/19/18 - Sexual Violence Resources 0 E. Lamb Are there any key resources (i.e. background trends, etc.) that can be shared, about sexual violence surveillance, that can help with the justification of using syndromic surveillance resources to help with prevention efforts?

Coagulopathy Cluster Syndrome Definitions 8 M. Patel I'm curious if anyone has explored using procedure codes for this. I'm was wondering if INR testing might be something that shows up. We have a set of facilities that send this information, but since it's not currently queryable within ESSENCE, I haven't used it yet.
