Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk (AMSR) Training for Behavioral Health Professionals

Universal Health Services, Inc. (UHS) hospitals in Illinois, Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Illinois Public Health Association (IPHA) have joined together to offer discounted trainings for "Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk". The IDPH is providing 6.5 CEs for several professions, including PTs and PTAs.

Overview: Health care providers face many challenges when working with patients and clients at risk for suicide. For example, calm and compassion are needed the most and the hardest to maintain when working with someone at risk for suicide. Some patients may not disclose thoughts of suicide, and even when they do, the health care provider must make judgment calls about unpredictable outcomes, often with insufficient or contradictory information.

The fee to attend is $85, covering the cost of the presentation materials, and the programming is based on the latest research.

The dates and locations of upcoming training is listed below:

  • December 4th- Streamwood Behavioral Healthcare System (Streamwood)
  • December 5th - Garfield Park Behavioral Hospital (Chicago)
  • December 6th - The Pavilion Behavioral Health System (Champaign)
  • December 7th - Lincoln Prairie Behavioral Health Center (Springfield)
  • December 10th - Riveredge Hospital (Forest Park)
  • December 11th - Chicago Children’s Center for Behavioral Health (Chicago)
