Suicide Screening and Referral Elements


Course Description

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) suicide is ranked as the 10th leading cause of death in the United States with over 40,000 people dying each year.  Unfortunately the prevailing stigma and silence that surrounds suicide has prevented people from receiving the proper training and education required to recognize and help a suicidal person.

This course will teach people how to recognize the warning signs of a suicidal person and screen for suicidal risk, utilizing the current tools and methods available. Referral for appropriate services, tips to help the suicidal client, and
planning for safety will also be covered. This basic course is designed to help all providers identify and assist a suicidal client.
