Unfortunately, almost every client group has the potential to be at high risk for suicide-related behaviors.Whether your area of practice is policy, community advocacy, direct practice, or case management with young or old, suicide prevention and competency is a must.We will explore the science of hope, assessment, and treatment within the context of prevention, primary prevention, high-risk groups, and the power of postvention.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will learn the three preventions of suicide and their plan of action with each.
