Suicide was declared a public health crisis by the U.S. Surgeon General in 1999 and again in 2020.  However, suicide rates have continued to climb over the past two decades by a staggering 35% overall. There are important changes occurring in the national dialog reflective of culture change- but the shedding of stigma must go further to a deepening of mental health literacy. There are several science-informed, evidence-based strategies to reduce suicide risk, both through the public health approach for an entire population, as well as clinical interventions for patient care. As the science of suicide and prevention has been growing rapidly over the past two decades, these prevention strategies and targeted ways to better identify risk must be translated and disseminated for greatest impact. 

In this presentation called “Clinical Strategies for Preventing Suicide” by AFSP Chief Medical Officer Dr. Christine Moutier, participants will learn about the current science, trends in the culture surrounding mental health, and the most current recommendations for assessing suicide risk and applying steps to identify risk and care for patients at risk for suicide. Safety planning, lethal means counseling, communication, and evidence-based treatments will be discussed. The data related to medications will be presented to address the role of medications in suicide preventive care. 

This Course was recorded 9/17/21

  • Develop an understanding of suicide and the public health approach to suicide prevention, including national trends in U.S. such as: broad education and advocacy from stakeholders including loss survivors, attempt survivors, clinicians as advocates and educators
  • Describe the principles of prevention-oriented suicide risk assessment and current evidence-based suicide specific clinical interventions, including: Safety Planning, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and suicide specific psychopharmacology

Christine Moutier, MD

Christine Moutier, MD, serves as chief medical officer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and has testified before the U.S. Congress, presented to the White House, and at the National Academy of Sciences. She co-anchored CNN’s Emmy Award winning Finding Hope suicide prevention town hall with Anderson Cooper, and has appeared as an expert in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Time magazine, The Economist, The Atlantic, the BBC, CNN, NBC and other print and television outlets.

Since earning her medical degree and training in psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego, Moutier has been a practicing psychiatrist, professor of psychiatry, a dean in the UCSD School of Medicine, and medical director of the Inpatient Psychiatric Unit at the VA Medical Center in La Jolla, treating diverse patient populations from Asian refugees to veterans to corporate and academic leaders. She also served as co-investigator for the Sequenced Treatment Alternatives to Relieve Depression study (STAR*D), a large National Institute of Mental Health trial on the treatment of refractory depression.

Dr. Moutier began her work in suicide prevention many years ago after losing physician colleagues to suicide. In addition to advocating for institutional shifts in policies and procedures which normalize help seeking for mental health concerns at individual and institutional levels, Dr. Moutier has been instrumental in highlighting the role of licensing boards in framing questions to focus on competence rather than illness. She is similarly working with other fields such as nursing, veterinary medicine, law enforcement, construction and the entertainment industry to allow all individuals to proactively manage their mental health optimally. 

Moutier has authored articles and book chapters for publications such as the Journal of the American Medical Association, Academic Medicine, the American Journal of Psychiatry, the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, and Academic Psychiatry. She has a clinical suicide prevention handbook planned for release in early 2021.

Social work is built upon a foundation of social and racial justice yet, many social workers are uncomfortable with this lens and underestimate its necessity in providing effective treatment. The NASW Code of Ethics clearly outlines the importance of uplifting those who are marginalized and oppressed as well as social workers engaging in advocacy efforts to root out oppression and systemic racism. While social workers come from many walks of life and are not monolithic in beliefs and practices, the uniqueness of our professional identity calls us to a higher standard of self and social examination. The social work profession (and other helping professions) have been called to explore our role in both furthering and dismantling systems of harm in better service to our clients and society. Through this workshop, we will explore the history and role of oppression and racism in social work, discuss racial trauma, learn how our individual biases are formed and reinforced through unconscious bias, seek ways to challenge and rewire our beliefs so that we can move beyond hate and towards love for all clients, and finally embrace actionable steps we can take to embody the fullness of our roles.

This course was recorded 9/17/21

I took the Board Certified-TeleMental Health Provider Training Certification Course in 2018, I feel so lucky to have found the TeleHealth Certification Institute. It's a top notch training center which has continued to provide me with tools and the knowledge to grow my private teletherapy practice. I recently participated in the TeleMental Health Preparedness Summit 2020 and was definitely not disappointed. The excitement and enthusiasm from the participants and TeleHealth Certification Institute staff is contagious. I've been inspired, since, to look into taking more courses, and joined their FaceBook group. I will likely join their consultation group in the near future. I don't believe there is another training institute out there that is as good as this one for everything telebehavioral health. Thank you Ray! You are a visionary!
