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 unique training opportunities are made possible through grant funding from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to promote best practice and evidence-based techniques in recognizing, assessing and managing suicidal thoughts and behaviors.  Interested participants must be practicing in Wisconsin.
