Current conditions demand finding ways to safely work with suicidal individuals using telehealth. This 1-hour webinar, co-hosted by the Suicide Prevention Resource Center (www.sprc.org), will provide pragmatic guidance for evaluating and managing suicide risk via telehealth. In particular, adaptations to do remote screening and risk assessment will be discussed as well as how to effectively conduct safety planning with people at risk. Resources to immediately implement these strategies will be shared. Certificates of completion are available to those who attend at least 30 minutes of the live webinar.
