Suicide Assessments - Are you prepared during a crisis?

Learn how to help a loved one, friend, co-worker during a suicide crisis

 Have you felt the impact of suicide?  Likely so, and if not by now, when?  Suicide is a national health crisis and stats continue to increase daily. This course will show how you can get help someone experiencing thoughts of suicide. When immediate help is not an option, you will learn how to assess in a crisis.  

I am a content expert on suicide as I have been a therapist for 22 years. I have worked and supervised clinicians completing suicide assessments in emergency departments, inpatient behavioral health units, outpatient clinics, and for county mobile emergency service centers.  This course is not in substitution of medical advice and is to serve as an introduction for the untrained consumer, and as an intermediate/advance content for clinicians in the mental health or medical field.  This course is a thorough look at all the risk and protective factors, how to ask the right questions, and the action steps needed when you otherwise may not know what to do.

This course is like medical first aid. After you have completed, you will feel better equipped to help anyone during a mental health crisis until experts can intervened. If you have questions about the course or would like more information, please email me at: [email protected] and I will answer your questions ASAP!
