Suicide Prevention in Rural Primary Care, Part 1: Office Protocols, Screening and Assessment
People who die by suicide are more likely to have been seen by a primary care provider in the 30 days prior to their death than any other healthcare discipline. In rural areas especially, where behavioral health resources are fewer and stigma around seeking mental health help may be greater, it is crucial that primary care providers have the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to help prevent suicide among their clients. This webinar will introduce a simple toolkit to help put suicide prevention protocols into place in a practice or clinic, and will walk participants through the screening, assessment, and intervention phases of suicide prevention. Tips for addressing suicidal issues via telehealth will also be included.

Part 1 of this two-part series will cover an Overview of rural suicide issues, contributing factors to suicide rates in rural communities, Primary Care providers’ critical role in suicide prevention, office protocols, and patient screening and risk assessment.
