HSABC Webinar: Suicide Prevention Information Transfer Tool Checklist

May 28, 2024, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

HSABC's Suicide Prevention Information Transfer Tool Checklist webinar discusses how to use the suicide prevention checklist to provide information to local mental health providers, hospitals, and health authorities. This webinar teaches important categories to pay attention to and how to transfer pertinent information that mental health workers can use to engage vulnerable and at-risk populations. **This webinar is not intended to replace a qualified mental health assessment.** Rather, it's an interactive learning experience that can help participants effectively address risk factors supportively.
