AMSR-Direct Care Inpatient Training

AMSR-trained professionals report increased willingness, confidence, and clarity in working with people at risk of suicide.

The AMSR-Direct Care Inpatient Training workshop prepares non-clinical staff working in inpatient care settings to provide confident and empathetic care to patients at risk of suicide.

AMSR-Direct Care Inpatient Training is a companion training, meant to be used in settings where clinical providers have already attended the AMSR-Inpatient Training and are implementing the AMSR risk formulation.
