Suicide in the elderly is much more common than many of us think.

This course will teach you how to spot the warning signs, what to expect, and ways you can help prevent suicide in elders.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services has completed their “Promoting Mental Health and Preventing Suicide: A Toolkit for Senior Living Communities.” The toolkit contains resources to help staff in senior living communities promote mental health and prevent suicide among their residents.
