The Mountain Plains MHTTC in partnership with the University of North Dakota Department of Occupational Therapy will host a half-day training symposium on suicide prevention for students and faculty of the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences. The training will open with a presentation of commonly used suicide assessment tools, how to have a conversation with patients regarding suicidal thoughts, and best practices for using a multi-disciplinary approach to supporting patients with active suicidal thoughts. A moderated panel discussion on suicide prevention with special populations will follow this presentation. Panel presenters will review suicide prevention practices for: American Indians (Dr. Donald Warne, MD MPH), children and adolescents (Dr. John-Paul Legerski, PhD), Lesbian Gay Bi-sexual Trans Gender Queer (LGBTQ+) (Bruce Reeves, MSW, LMSW), and Veterans (Nathan Modeen, MSW, LCSW). The panel presenters will provide attendees with a case conceptualization and best practices for working with their identified special population.
