Course Details

This course will help staff identify signs, symptoms, and other factors that may indicate an elevated risk for self-harm and/or suicide, and some tools to intervene appropriately. Suicide and self-harm prevention are critical components of care for individuals in correctional settings, and require a collaborative case management approach that integrates knowledge, awareness, and insights from everyone working with individuals in correctional settings, including both correctional staff and health care professionals. Early identification of risk for self-harm and/or suicide is important so the risk can be reduced before it becomes a crisis, and so crises can be defused before they lead to adverse outcomes, such as loss of life.
