People in the justice system are at greater risk of suicide and self-harm. Physical and mental health clinicians may have clients who are justice-involved but they rarely receive training on the complexities of assessing and managing risk in this population. At the end of this half-day training, participants will be able to identify risk factors specific to justice-involved populations, understand how justice involvement may contribute to risk, and consider the complexities of managing suicide and self-harm risk. This training was designed for clinicians and service providers who have at least a basic understanding of suicide and self-harm assessment.
