Involving Family and Loved Ones in Suicide Prevention Efforts
Family and friends play a critical role in a Veteran’s life, especially during difficult times.
Drs. Kathryn Barrs and Barbara Dausch will discuss how to clinically involve loved ones in the prevention of suicide for individuals at increased risk. Presenters will also share available resources in VA and the community to support Veterans and their loved ones.
Following this live, knowledge-based virtual training, clinicians and health care teams will be able to:
- Identify clinical environments where it is important to involve loved ones in the treatment of a Veteran.
- Discuss safety planning with loved ones.
- Apply evidence-informed interventions focused on decreasing the risk of suicide.
This is a virtual lecture series for physicians, nurses, psychologists, pharmacists, and social workers.
