Beyond the Basics 2019




Building Resiliency Through Effective Interventions:

Beyond the Basics in Suicide Prevention Conference 2019

Friday, April 12, 2019

Augusta Civic Center

Augusta, Maine





From its beginning in 2003, Maine’s Beyond the Basics in Suicide Prevention Conference has provided Maine health professionals, educators, clinicians, first responders and community members with “Best Practice” information, guidance and resources in suicide prevention and management efforts.  The conference is designed for an adult audience that has attained basic training and knowledge in suicide and suicide prevention, and wishes to expand their knowledge and ability to engage in suicide prevention in Maine.  The conference theme in 2019 is Building Resiliency Through Effective Interventions and will highlight a range of informative breakout sessions underscoring efforts to better assess and manage suicide risk as well as ways to support resilience.


This year’s conference features national experts on late life suicide and self-injury, as well as local professionals to address suicide prevention, intervention, and post-vention issues. The program will offer messages of hope and recognize a few of the caring Mainers who have made a difference.
