Interventions for Suicide Risk and Postvention for Suicide Loss Survivors

As a healthcare professional working with at risk individuals, the chances are high that you will encounter someone who has either made a suicide attempt, or is at risk of doing so. Individuals who have made a suicide attempt are at double the risk for a subsequent attempt for a full year, with a lesser degree of elevated risk continuing on a long-term basis. Moreover, the risk for subsequent attempts is even higher during the first few weeks after an attempt (Chung, et al. 2017). While there are many other crucial aspects of managing suicide risk, including the identification of risk factors and warning signs, screening, and assessment, this course will focus on interventions for those who have made a recent attempt or who are at risk due to suicidal thoughts, feelings, or behaviors. Although there is a global initiative to reach a “zero suicide” death rate, continued efforts are needed to see this to fruition, and deaths by suicide do occur with alarming regularity. Each year, millions of people across the globe will experience the devastating impact of the suicide of a loved one, and the risk of suicide increases among those bereaved by suicide (CDC, 2017). We will therefore also discuss important steps you need to take in the aftermath of a suicide, including postvention approaches with individuals exposed to or impacted by suicide, and methods to reduce suicide contagion in your treatment setting and community.
