CE Course Description
The time right after a suicide attempt can be very emotional and confusing, and it may be even more difficult than the time preceding the attempt. This intermediate level continuing education course, developed using information from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA), provides strategies for taking the first steps toward recovery after a suicide attempt. Stories of individuals who have endured through a suicide attempt are presented, as well as practical tools and resources that behavioral health professionals can share with clients who have experienced suicidal thoughts, ideations, behaviors, or attempts.
