Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI) Training

March 1 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Mental Health Programs

The virtual Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (NSSI) Training will be held on Friday, March 1st, 2024 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM via Zoom.

Non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) is the direct, deliberate destruction of body tissue in the absence of suicidal intent. It has been on the rise over the past two decades. Among youth and young adults, it is frequently an issue of concern in education, health, and behavioral health settings. Though usually not a suicidal act, there is significant connection between self-injury and suicide risk that must be understood and addressed.

This training will review demographics, risk factors, and warning signs of self-injury as well as recommendations for assessment, intervention, and management of self-injury. Introduction to NSSI protocol development and implementation will be offered as well as resources to support professional staff to address assessment and ongoing treatment needs. 

This training is recommended for nurses, behavioral health clinicians, and other professional staff working in educational or healthcare settings.
