This training will focus on suicide risk factors, protective factors, assessment of risk severity, and other planning strategies.

Attendees will use this information to create a meaningful, dynamic plan that includes warning signs, formal and informal supports/contacts, supportive environments and coping strategies. The training will include a brief discussion of suicide assessment tools available to agencies serving youth. Attendees will review the limits of confidentiality, framing these limits at the beginning of the service and/or care providing relationship. The training group will review how to most effectively initiate emergency services.
