In the past decade, the number of deaths by suicide has increased, and even greater numbers of people attempt or have frequent thoughts about suicide. It is therefore likely that you will encounter suicidal individuals in your work. Many providers are fearful of discussing suicide with their clients, as they feel unsure of what to say. This course will provide you with a brief overview of factors to consider when working with potentially suicidal clients. By understanding some basic elements of screening and ways to discuss suicide openly, you will be better able to support suicidal clients.

The goal of this course is to help non-licensed direct care staff in health and human services settings to gain knowledge about suicide screening.
