This 6-week series, offered under funding from the Vermont Department of Mental Health,  in January-February 2019 is designed for teams from health care, mental health organizations, primary care and hospitals interested in implementing Zero Suicide.  This series will prepare staff in positions to oversee, lead or manage a Zero Suicide initiative. The webinar series will be followed up by a Zero Suicide Skills Institute planned for April, 2019 for clinical teams.


The webinar series will be followed by a one-day, in-person Zero Suicide Skills Institute planned for April 2019 and will provide more in-depth information about Zero Suicide principles and practices for clinical teams, focused on screening, assessment, treatment and follow-up.  This will include workshops on the use of the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (CSSRS), Collaborative Assessment for Managment of Suicide (CAMS), Counseling About Lethal Means (CALM) and followup protocols.
