Webinar CE: Screening & Assessment of Suicidal Thoughts & Behaviors in Children & Adolescents
With youth mental health in a state of crisis, do you have a consistent, evidence-based approach to screening pediatric patients for suicidal thoughts and behaviors? If a patient’s risk for suicide surfaces during their visit, are you ready to provide the latest evidence-based interventions?
