AMSR Substance Use Disorder – Virtual

A 1-day workshop for mental health professionals on assessing suicide risk, planning treatment, and managing the care of those at risk.

About this event

Substance use disorder treatment professionals make decisions every day about how to support individuals in care who may also be at risk of suicide. Suicide is a leading cause of death among people who misuse alcohol and drugs.

The AMSR for Substance Use Disorder Treatment Professionals (AMSR-SUD) curriculum develops skills in the recognition, assessment, and management of suicide risk and the delivery of effective suicide-specific interventions.

AMSR-SUD was designed to address the training gap. This training aims to provide participants with the background knowledge and practical skills that they need to address suicidal risk and behaviors in clients in care for substance use disorder treatment.

Training includes: 6.5 hours of training, in a mix of lecture, paired practice, written exercises, and video modeling, an engaging and stimulating participant manual, including bibliographies for each of the five major sections, post-workshop access to additional resources on a web page exclusively for AMSR participants and trainers.

Who should attend? Mental health professionals working in substance use disorder treatment settings who conduct suicide risk assessments, primarily those with a master’s degree or above.

Cost? $165.00/per person (includes training manual). Credit cards or checks accepted (Checks can be made and sent to Hope Network – 3075 Orchard Vista Dr. SE Grand Rapids, MI 49546)

Time? 8:30am-4:30pm. There will be a one hour lunch break and two short breaks.
