The Suicide Assessment and Management Training will be held on Thursday, February 1, 2024 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM in the Orange Yurt at The Ecology School, 184 Simpson Road, Saco, ME 04072.

The Suicide Assessment and Management Training is designed to prepare a new or seasoned clinician to understand the risk of suicide, how to approach and complete an effective suicide risk assessment and intervention as well as ongoing management for individuals at increased risk. The focus is on assessment skills for those working in clinical roles including counselors, social workers, nurses, and psychologists. 

The Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) will be used as a recommended tool for assessment. A systemic approach to suicide prevention is followed where assessment, intervention, Collaborative Safety Planning, and assured follow-up are the critical elements. Assessment and Safety Planning tools and model documentation will be included for ongoing use.

For clinical staff working in a school, this training can be counted for suicide prevention Gatekeeper Training renewal.
