Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk

This course is a 3.0 credit-hour training for staff who provide direct care to clients and support the clinicians managing client treatment, normally delivered in a 3.5-hour block of time.

This course teaches skills in the recognition, assessment, and management of suicide risk and the delivery of effective suicide-specific interventions.  The course provides participants with the opportunity to increase the knowledge and skills they need to address suicide risk and behaviors in outpatient settings.

 After training, participants will have:

  1. Increased knowledge in the following core competencies: maintaining an effective attitude and approach, collecting accurate assessment information, formulating risk, developing a treatment and services plan, and managing care.
  2. Increased willingness, confidence, and clarity in working with individuals at risk for suicide.
  3. Increased ability to identify how they can better care for individuals at risk for suicide.

 Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk (AMSR) addresses the core competencies that meet suicide care standards established by national organizations including The Joint Commission, the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Veterans Administration, and others.  AMSR is the curriculum created by the Suicide Prevention Resource Center and Zero Suicide Institute and produced by Education Development Center. 

The course is funded by an OMHSAS grant.
