Zero Suicide Workshops
Zero Suicide workshops are customized for your group’s specific needs and participants. While a Zero Suicide Academy® is very structured and designed for multiple organizations’ implementation teams, workshops are more flexible and can be developed for a variety of audiences with varying knowledge levels or preparation about Zero Suicide.
Engaging presentations and discussions can focus on introducing the model, resources for beginning implementation, and how to overcome barriers. Workshops may also include strategic planning; for example, participants begin to develop an action plan specific to their organization with consultation from our Zero Suicide experts.
Zero Suicide workshops can be stand-alone events; they may also be held 6-12 months prior to a Zero Suicide Academy to serve as an introduction to participants or as a follow-up to an Academy.
Workshops vary considerably depending on your needs. We typically take several months to discuss your goals and craft a tailored agenda together.
Hoping to kick-off implementation? We can present the Zero Suicide framework, discuss how to determine the best tools to integrate into your clinical flow, how to choose the best trainings for staff, and how to create a culture of safety
Seeking to get community buy-in and support for your Zero Suicide implementation? We can introduce the framework and help community groups understand their role in supporting individuals before, during, and after their care in your system.
Hosting a Zero Suicide Academy later in the year? A workshop can be tailored to introduce the model and research foundations to senior leaders of the organizations you’re hoping will apply.
Organizing a Workshop
If you’re a group interested in a tailored in-person introduction to the Zero Suicide framework or a deeper dive into particular areas of the model, then a workshop may be a great fit!
If you’re a small organization or if you’re not sure yet what you need, virtual consultation may be a better first option for you.
If you’re a state, federal grantee, federal agency, or regional prevention coalition interested in supporting health and behavioral health organizations in your area to begin their Zero Suicide work, then a Zero Suicide Workshop may be a great complement to your Zero Suicide Academy®. A Workshop may also meet your needs if you need a more focused introduction to the framework for a smaller group of individuals or organizations.
