Training Older Adult Services Agencies in Suicide Prevention/Intervention

Older Americans are disproportionately likely to die by suicide. Since suicide is a major public health issue for older adults, it is important that service providers and caregivers be trained to recognize symptoms of depression, the risk factors and warning signs for suicide, as well as the resources available to assist the individual who may be at risk.

Designated a National Best Practice program, Connect training utilizes a unique community-based model designed to increase the competence of older adult service providers and caregivers in responding to  suicide incidents and individuals at risk.  For more information, click here.
