Suicide Assessment and Risk Reduction: Children and Youth Suicide: LIVE WEBINAR
Our community continues to see high rates of youth suicide and suicidal ideation. This workshop will provide brief local data on youth mental health and an overview of the Living Ideation theoretical framework for suicide intervention. Through discussion and consideration of clinical case studies that use creative local resources, participants will:
- be able to describe the continuum of suicide safety planning and the components of a comprehensive safety plan (including reducing access to lethal means);
- learn strategies to increase parents’ and caregivers’ confidence in keeping their children safe following hospital intervention or to prevent hospital intervention;
- increase their knowledge of available community resources to support youth and family members;
- and learn to implement Living Ideation safety plans to stabilize youth in their home and community.
