Many agencies and organizations now require screening for suicide risk. Learn how to use an evidence-based, registered best practice screening tool designed and adapted for both youth and adults. This screening protocol can be used in any setting, including schools, dental, medical clinics, hospitals, mental health centers, correctional facilities, or others.
If you work to help people recover from alcohol and substance abuse challenges, or who suffer from co-morbid mentally illness and addiction, this zero suicide training program is led by one of the world’s experts in addiction medicine, Dr. Richard K. Ries. This course covers the contribution of both legal and illegal substances to suicide risk, evidence-based care, and how to identify, screen, and refer at-risk persons to improve patient safety.
