Currently, there is limited specialized training available for practitioners regarding suicide prevention. Practitioners including frontline interprofessional responders (community first responders, medical providers, mental health and public health practitioners) as well as administrators and leaders (school principals, medical directors, tribal and community leaders) are individually and collectively critical for preventative and health promotion efforts. This 4-hour interactive workshop provides a unique opportunity for participants to explore evidence-based approaches to suicide prevention across the spectrum from universal approaches to selective strategies, including postvention to reduce risk in the aftermath of a suicide. The workshop will highlight considerations for collaborative intervention at multiple-micro, mezzo and macro-levels and across disciplines or roles. The workshop will use interactive learning, application to case studies and interprofessional dialogue to translate knowledge and research into practical skills relevant to participant's particular practice setting.
