AFSP/SPRC add the Late Life Suicide Prevention Toolkit to Section III of the Best Practices Registry (BPR)
This toolkit, which was developed by the Canadian Coalition for Seniors’ Mental Health for use by front-line providers, medical/mental health care clinicians, and health care trainees, has now been added to Section III of the BPR under the category Education and Training Programs. The program focuses on how to: identify suicide warning signs; establish rapport and assess suicide risk and resiliency factors; and manage immediate and ongoing risk for suicide among older adults. The Late Life Suicide Prevention Toolkit is available online at no charge. Printed copies are available for a small charge.
