Held on Tuesday, November 8, at 12-1 p.m. ET
Co-Hosted by the Missouri Primary Care Association and Association of Clinicians for the Underserved as part of the MPCA/ACU Suicide Safer Care Webinar Series
Community health center leaders need to think about the role they play in their community to help suicide prevention efforts and to communicate that suicides are preventable. Health center leaders need to consider strong clinical pathways to care for patients at risk, support for employees, and human resources to address suicide risk among staff as suicide among healthcare providers is a rising problem. Participants will learn about the prevalence of suicide and ways their health center can be proactive in creating a system that supports patients and team members who are at risk for suicide.
