Safety Planning & Means Reduction in Large Health Care Organizations
Tuesday, December 16, 2014 | 3–4:30 p.m. Eastern Time
Safety planning and lethal means reduction are integral parts of comprehensive suicide care. Clinicians should develop safety plans collaboratively with all persons identified as at risk for suicide immediately after identifying the risk.
To develop effective safety plans and organizational policies for lethal means assessment and counseling, training for staff is necessary. Furthermore, input from those with lived experience is essential.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify safety planning and ways to reduce lethal means as part of a comprehensive Zero Suicide approach.
- Discuss ways to maximize the effectiveness of a safety plan.
- Develop an organizational policy for lethal means reduction.
- Explain the importance of input from people with lived experience.
Space is limited, but the slides and recording will be available after the webinar on the Zero Suicide toolkit,www.zerosuicide.com.
