Suicide is the 9th leading cause of death in Maine and the incidence of suicide in Maine has increased almost 25% in the last decade. Non-suicidal self injury, most frequently intentional cutting or self-burning has also increased markedly over the past decade. These behaviors are increasingly being identified, assessed and managed within healthcare settings.
This professional training offers an opportunity to learn valuable knowledge and skills in the function, assessment and management of non-suicidal self injury. The second part of the training will address suicide prevention and management within the framework of Suicide Safe Care, a systemic approach that increases safety and support for someone at risk. This evidence-based approach includes screening and assessment of risk, intervention, Collaborative Safety Planning and assured follow-up with anyone at risk for suicide.
