MHA of WI Suicide Care Trainings

In collaboration with Mental Health America of Wisconsin, the Behavioral Health Training Partnership is pleased to offer suicide care trainings for mental health professionals and health care providers supporting individuals who may be at risk of suicide. These four unique training opportunities are made possible through grant funding from the Department of Health Services to promote best practice and evidence-based techniques in recognizing, assessing and managing suicidal thoughts and behaviors.

COVID-19 Update

All in-person trainings offered in April and into May will either be offered as a virtual experience or postponed to be offered at a later date. We’re working hard to develop virtual experiences that will mirror our in-person training. More details, access information, and options will be communicated to you over the next couple of weeks. We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience as we work out the many details.

If you wish to cancel your registration or defer your registration fees to an in-person option that may be available later in the year please email Savanna Mishler mishlers@uwgb.edu

The 6.5-hour training program is based on the latest research and designed to help participants provide safer suicide care.  Health care providers face many challenges when working with patients and clients at risk for suicide.  Some patients may not disclose thoughts of suicide, and even when they do, the health care provider must make judgment calls about unpredictable outcomes, often with insufficient or contradictory information.
