Physicians and other providers are particularly vulnerable to negative mental health effects and increased suicide risk during the COVID-19 pandemic, likely due to balancing the duty of caring for their patients and the concern for their own health and wellbeing and that of their friends and family.

This training provides specific tactics to help support your primary care providers and team members through systematic and organizational approaches to address suicide risk and prevent deaths by suicide among employees. Learn how to create a response plan that can be applied during the COVID-19 pandemic to help your organization reduce the risk for suicide across your providers and team members.
