Below are training opportunities MHA of Wisconsin is able to support. If MHA cannot directly provide the training, we will work with you to identify an organization that can.
Creating the zero suicide culture; ensuring every patient has a pathway to care; developing a competent workforce; identifying and assessing suicide risk level; using effective, evidence-based care and continuing contact after care are all part of this two-day programming based on the Zero Suicide Initiative developed by the National Alliance for Suicide Prevention. Health systems and ancillary organizations learn how to collaborate and together develop continuity of care for those in mental health care upon release from the emergency room or inpatient care and more.
