For Participants

AMSR has trained over 50,000 health and behavioral health care professionals in strategies for providing compassionate care to those at risk of suicide.

Benefits of AMSR Training

“I know more signs to watch out for, and when someone comes to me in crisis, I'm more equipped to handle it myself more directly rather than refer.”

AMSR-trained professionals report increased willingness, confidence, and clarity in working with clients and patients at risk of suicide. A certificate of completion will be available online after completion of the post-training survey.
