This free course helps prepare behavioral health professionals to identify potentially suicidal persons, determine immediate risk of suicide, and help reduce the risk of a suicide attempt or completion through a safety planning and referral process.  Four (4) hours of continuing education are offered with successful completion of the final course exam.

This webinar-based course is offered at no cost. This course is not as clinically-oriented as the Suicide Prevention full course.  It provides an overview of the prevalence of suicide, effective methods to prevent suicide, the types of evidence-based suicide risk assessments that are available, and interventions for persons at risk for suicide. Learners can earn 2.5 continuing education credits/hours for successful completion of the course.
