Announcing New Harm Risk
Behaviors Course

Athena Forum is pleased to announce a new suite of courses on Harm Risk Behavior. The first course in this set is on the topic of Suicide Prevention.

The purpose of Improving Outcomes in Harm-Risk Behaviors & Suicide Prevention is to educate case managers about suicide so that they may be aware of early warning signs and empowered to intervene and support the efforts of other transdisciplinary team members, including other health care professionals, patients and families.

From The Suicide Prevention
Course Director

Suicide is a Major Public Health Priority

"There are few people that have not been affected in some way by someone's suicide or suicidal attempt. Sadly, the stigma and anxiety associated with suicide or suicidal gestures create a climate where healing and resolution of painful issues is difficult."
