SPECIAL EVENT: CEU Opportunity
Assessment, Safety Planning and Prevention
For over a decade, the suicide rate in Missouri has been higher than the national rate. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death with suicides outnumbering homicides by more than two to one. With the increase in opiate addictions, it is critical that social workers are educated in how to assess, treat, and refer to appropriate levels of care to lower the risks for suicide.
Upon completion of this workshop participants will be able to:
Recognize the warning signs of suicide risk,
Understand family concerns with at-risk patients,
Incorporate behavioral health screens and safety plans,
Apply best practices that facilitate resilience and improve health outcomes,
Identify resources and recent research for suicide prevention.
