DBH’s Evidence-Based Practice and Innovation Center (aka EPIC) put out guidance for managing suicidal clients during this pandemic. The Suicide Prevention-Training Implementation Evaluation (SP-TIE) developed a three-page resource guide with tips for treating suicidal individuals remotely, including a template safety plan.

You can find the guide for download here: Telehealth-Tips-with-Suicidal-Clients-03-25-20

Please be sure to follow all Wedge procedures regarding suicidal ideation. Procedures are in the Procedure Manual, which is available for download in this portal. Reach out to your supervisor if you have any questions.
