Suicide Assessment and Intervention Training for Mental Health Professionals is based on current best practices and is designed to increase knowledge and improve the skills and confidence of mental health professionals who find themselves identifying high-risk youth and adults, and planning for their care.
“This was SO, SO, SO helpful in not only easing my anxiety about approaching this topic with clients, but also gave me many tools and methods to extend the dialogue beyond a few typical assessment questions.” -Darleen J. Gracia, PsyD, Staff Psychologist, Tufts University
“Excellent interaction with audience. Resource packet was great! I can honestly say this is the best program I have ever attended to assist me as a provider of social services!!” -Lindsey D. Snavely, BSW, Resident Service Coordinator, SHINE Counselor, Crowninshield Management Corporation
