We’re pleased to announce the release of our new online course, Safety Planning for Youth Suicide Prevention. This free, self-paced course is designed for health, behavioral health, and mental health clinicians as well as students in clinical training programs.

In this course, participants will develop their knowledge and skills in using the Stanley-Brown Safety Planning Intervention, an evidence-based collaborative intervention for clinicians and clients at risk of suicide. Participants will learn the core elements of the Safety Planning Intervention, strategies for collaborating with young clients and their family members, and ways to overcome challenges.

This online course is approved by the National Association of Social Workers for one continuing education contact hour.
