SafeSide Primary CARE: An Interactive Online Workshop. This is a fast-paced, online interactive workshop led by suicide prevention expert, Dr. Tony Pisani, and lived experience instructor, Kristina Mossgraber.
More than just safe care, it is hope for a full recovery and a life that’s liveable again. Suicide concerns can come up any time in primary care–on routine screening, in the context of depression treatment, or because a parent or spouse is worried.
Regulatory requirements to assess and address risk are also increasing, adding to the list of responsibilities (and opportunities) to promote health.
Most providers are eager to help and want to relieve suffering, but training specific to primary care is hard to come by and there's uncertainty about what defines a solid response to risk. With something this important, somebody should make it clear.
SafeSide provides a clear framework for suicide prevention in primary care. It's never easy, but now you have map.
