Equip your non-clinical BIT and case management staff to identify and assess an individual’s risk related to suicidal ideation.
Participants in this course will learn how to triage risk related to suicide using the Non-Clinical Assessment of Suicide Tool (NAS). The NAS relies on evidence-based risk and protective factors to help non-licensed professionals triage the overall risk for suicide an individual poses. The instructors in this course will provide an overview of how to identify an individual who may be experiencing suicidal ideation, strategies for asking about suicide in a 1:1 appointment, and in-depth teaching of the NAS as a suicide assessment tool. Additionally, participants will learn how to make an effective referral to clinical mental health services and deploy appropriate interventions based on the level of risk assessed using the NAS.
What does the Non-Clinical Assessment of Suicide (NAS) do?
The NAS offers non-clinically trained staff a list of questions to ask an individual to help gauge their overall risk level of suicide and makes recommendations for interventions.
Who can use the Non-Clinical Assessment of Suicide (NAS)?
There is no substitute for a clinically trained/licensed counselor, however, the NAS assists non-licensed staff members to conduct preliminary assessments of suicide risk.
