The ability to conduct an effective suicide risk assessment is a vital skill for people working in clinical settings with people at risk.

This day-long workshop builds knowledge about suicide trends among veterans across the lifespan and takes participants through the steps of a suicide risk assessment interview.  Additional material is presented on intervention, determination of level of care, treatment, and referral.  This training is designed for those working in mental health and primary care clinical roles primarily with veterans who need more in-depth resources and information in order to assess suicide risk.

   

Lunch is NOT provided, however there will be a 1 hour break for lunch on your own.  Training space provided courtesy of the VA.
