This training is part of an intensive technical assistance activity and is open by invitation only. If you have questions about this training or are interested in providing similar training in your community please contact us by emailing David Terry.
The focus of the training and technical assistance is to identify individuals who are at greatest risk to suffer contagion following a death by suicide.

- Signs and symptoms of suicide.
- Skills in intervention and support.
- Trauma responsive treatment.
- Safety and crisis planning.
- Application of person-centered care to assist in preparing individuals.
- Prevention of compassion fatigue.
