Suicide Prevention Tools for Primary Care Providers

Event Date: Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Event Type: Webinar/Online Event

Description

Primary care providers can help prevent suicide as about half or more of those contemplating or succeeding in suicide attempts see their doctor around the time of the event. The SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions and the Suicide Prevention Resource Center are co-sponsoring a webinar to highlight practical primary care strategies from the Suicide Prevention Toolkit for Rural Primary Care. Insights are applicable to many other safety-net providers. 

This webcast will provide:

  • Information on suicide prevention trainings and resources available for primary care and clinical staff.
  • Recommendations for how to implement at least one office protocol and how to access local resources for people at risk of suicide.
  • Outcome data on how Community Health Centers trained in suicide prevention improved their knowledge, skills, and competency.
  • Lessons from how one Community Health Center implemented suicide prevention protocols in their agency.
