About the Summit
This workshop will use both the current state of the research and practice experience in both schools and mental health to help participants learn the basics of suicide risk, assessment, prevention, and intervention. Participants will be given concrete, practical information to conduct culturally and developmentally appropriate risk assessments, as well as a 7-step model for intervention that includes strategies for helping professionals to implement. Attendees will be given extensive handouts for use after the session, with an emphasis on culturally and developmentally-appropriate risk assessment and prevention programming, as well as intervention guidelines for treatment. Efforts will be made to include different practice settings (school, community, private practice, hospital, nursing home, etc.) and to attend to different levels of experience and training among participants.
