Assessing & Managing Suicide Risk (6 CEUs)

Training Description

47,000 Americans died by suicide in 2017, and sadly, over 14% of the completed suicides were Veterans. Despite increased funding and awareness, the Veteran suicide rate is still steady. Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk (AMSR) helps give clinicians the skills and confidence to meet suicide care standards and competencies.

This training is designed for outpatient providers to assess and manage suicide risk with the goal of aiding in patient recovery. Clinicians will learn through group discussion, case examples, and videos, and should expect to participate in this class with a collaborative, non-adversarial and nonjudgmental stance. This course meets the Washington State requirements (RCW 43.70.442) for social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and psychologists.
