Suicide Prevention and Intervention Training for Health Care Providers: A Program for Nurses, LNAs and MAs

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, 2017), suicide is the second leading cause of death in New Hampshire (after accidental injury) for individuals age 10 to 34. It is the fourth leading cause of death in NH for individuals age 35 to 54 (after accidental injury, cancer, and heart disease).

This workshop will cover the range of risk and protective factors, the warning signs, and what to do if someone may be at risk for suicide whether it is a patient, family member, friend, or co-worker. The speaker will review actions to take when there is immediate concern and resources in the community that can help create a safety net for people at risk of suicide.
