This training will focus on suicide risk factors, protective factors, assessment of risk severity, and protective strategies planning in the context of telehealth. Attendees will identify potential challenges when assessing suicidality by text, on the phone, and while using video platforms. The training will cover standardized and non-standardized suicide assessment tools and the means of titrating the use of these for telehealth. Attendees will then translate assessment information into a dynamic protective plan that includes warning signs, formal and informal supports/contacts, supportive environments and coping strategies. Attendees will discuss how to address the limitations of confidentiality for the different telehealth modalities.
