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.
Anne Moss Rogers, who is a mental health speaker and suicide prevention trainer educates through her personal story of losing a son to depression, addiction, and suicide and what she wishes she knew before, how she healed from a devastating loss, and what practitioners could do more effectively to get the family engaged with supporting a child in crisis and how to prevent a child from getting to crisis.
