Evaluating and Responding to Suicide Risk

Tools and Practices for Consideration. Suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Suicide Now Claims

With these rates rising, suicide now claims more lives than traffic accidents and more than twice as many as homicides.

In this session, we highlight recommendations for screening, risk assessment, safety, treatment, discharge, and follow up care for individuals at risk for suicide. In addition, the webinar provides an overview of tools, resources, and practices that are available to the health care field in support of these recommendations.
