BACKGROUND: Over 40,000 Americans die by suicide every year. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States; the 2nd leading cause of death for ages 10-24; 5th leading cause of death for ages 45-59; the rate among American Indian/Alaska Native adolescents and young adults ages 15-24 is 1.8 times the national average. An American dies by suicide every 12.95 minutes. For every woman who dies by suicide, four men die by suicide, but women are 3x more likely to attempt suicide. 90% of those who die by suicide had a diagnosable psychiatric disorder at the time of their death. In 2012, firearms were the most common method of death by suicide, accounting for 50.9% of all suicide deaths, followed by suffocation (including hangings) at 24.8% and poisoning at 16.7%. VETERANS COMPRISE 22.2% OF SUICIDES. It’s time to reverse these statistics.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: This 6.25-hour suicide assessment, intervention, and prevention workshop will provide the participant with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to competently perform a suicide assessment, determine risk factors, and develop a safety plan to prevent suicide. Participants will learn about the new CDC public health approach to the assessment of issues related to imminent harm via lethal means or self-injurious behaviors. Theoretical underpinnings of suicidology inform state-of-the-art approaches to care of individuals experiencing thoughts and behaviors related to self-directed violence. Hands-on experience in implementing the Veteran’s Administration Self-Directed Violence Classification System and the Chronological Assessment of Suicide Events provide the background for participant developed safety plans and essential clinical documentation based on case study analysis.

OBJECTIVES: At the completion of this workshop the participant will:

  1. Discuss the CDC reclassification of suicide as a public health concern
  2. Explain the phenomenon (theoretical underpinnings, epidemiology, risk and protective factors, legal/ethical aspects) of suicide in both civilian and veteran populations.
  3. Describe the VAMC Classification System and Decision Tree for Self-Directed Violence.
  4. Discuss the 2015 American Psychiatric Nurses Association Suicide Competencies
  5. Demonstrate and document suicide assessment, intervention, and prevention strategies and techniques
