Youth Suicide Risk Assessment and Safety Planning Workshop for Clinicians


Clinicians can decrease a patient’s suicide risk by knowing what to look for, how to do a suicide risk assessment, a suicide safety plan, and how to get parents more involved. In addition, this training will cover tips on how to get young people to communicate their pain so they get the support they need.

This workshop will give clinicians the confidence to support those struggling with thoughts of suicide from a leading practitioner, Dr. Kim O’Brien who was part of the team who developed an evidence-based safety plan for youth, and for parents because they need a road map on what to do and how to support a child who is struggling.

I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational mental health keynotes, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, anxiety, coping strategies/resilience, and grief.
