Understanding Suicide Prevention

Prepared by the Advancement for Clinical Practice Committee

The Advancement of Clinical Practice Committee of the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) is responsible for developing, coordinating, and producing the white papers, which give a brief orientation to clinical mental health counselors about topics relevant to current practice. Existing AMHCA white papers include mental illness prevention, technology in counseling, trauma-informed practices, and responding to suicide risk. Learn more about AMHCA's Advancement for Clinical Practice Committee.

This white paper is a preliminary look at the needs of persons at-risk for suicide or suicide attempts. Readers are encouraged to pursue the plentiful evidence-based practices and best practices that are reviewed in widely available publications and sites. It includes a list of "Top 10 Things to Know about Suicide Prevention and Intervention."
