Suicide Prevention and the Clinical Workforce: Guidelines for Training

The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention released the comprehensive Suicide Prevention and the Clinical Workforce: Guidelines for Training to assure that the U.S. clinical workforce is adequately prepared to treat persons at risk for suicide. The Action Alliance’s Clinical Workforce Preparedness Task Force spent over three years developing the guidelines to serve as the foundation for creating suicide prevention training programs in health and human services professions, such as nursing, social work, medicine, school counseling, and the full range of behavioral health and primary care disciplines. This initiative was designed so that each discipline could use the guidelines to develop specific continuing education curricula and train new clinicians to deliver optimal suicide care.
