Crisis Intervention & Suicide

MHCC 1006

Course description

People with mental health/addiction issues often present at healthcare settings in times of crisis when the acute aspects of their problems become harder to manage. Fortunately, there is growing evidence-based and values-informed practice wisdom to guide clinical practice for healthcare and other service providers. In this course, students develop the clinical competencies required to intervene, stabilize and de-escalate crises. They also learn how to assess their clients’ risk to self-harm and support them with appropriate interventions.
