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 in high risk populations 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 who need more in-depth resources and information in order to assess suicide risk.


This is training is offered free of charge under a grant from the State of Maine through the Maine Suicide Prevention Program.
