Recognizing & Responding to Suicide Risk in Primary Care Providers of Youth and Young Adults
Recognizing and Responding to Suicide Risk in Primary Care Providers of Youth and Young Adults (RRSR-PC-Y) is a 75-minute facilitated slide presentation with video illustration that provides primary care practitioners with knowledge of why and how routine suicide risk screening should and can be incorporated into routine medical visits, what constitutes appropriate risk management strategies and crisis response planning, how to effectively document a suicide risk assessment in a medical chart, and how to work with parents of at-risk youth.

The training package includes:
  • a pocket assessment tool
  • reproducible patients handouts
  • a facilitator-led slide presentation with video vignettes

The RRSR-PC-Y can be delivered in person or by webinar, and 1.5 CME credit hours are available.

The goal of the RRSR-PC-Y is for primary care practitioners of youth and young adults and staff to learn current best practices in eliciting suicide risk when present and meeting the needs of their distressed patients.
