The Division of Mental Health and Addiction and MHAI Stanley W. DeKemper Training Institute are offering a virtual Zero Suicide Academy August 11-12, 2022, to health care and behavioral health organizations in Indiana.
Zero Suicide Academy is a two-day virtual training opportunity for leaders of health care and behavioral health organizations and their Zero Suicide implementation teams that seek to reduce suicides among individuals in their care. This event provides the opportunity to learn from Zero Suicide experts, receive implementation consultation, begin strategic planning for their own Zero Suicide implementation, and develop strategies to maximize success.
Teams should consist of four individuals who champion Zero Suicide with a passion and can influence systemic change. Recommended team composition includes:
· Person responsible and with authority for implementation decisions (e.g. medical doctor, chief information officer, emergency department, director, or information technology).
· At least one person who manages your electronic health records system, quality improvement efforts, and/or risk management.
· At least one person who provides care to individuals daily (e.g. case manager, psychologist, social worker or nurse).
Apply for the Zero Suicide Academy here by July 15, 2022, at 5 p.m. EDT. Please direct any questions you may have about this opportunity to Justin Beattey, email@example.com or Michelle Bulington, firstname.lastname@example.org
