Medical providers (doctors, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, etc.) are invited to join Magellan for their Driving Suicides to Zero training Monday, April 29 from 9 to 11 a.m. or 1 to 3 p.m.  The goal of the training is to help reduce the suicide rate by providing behavioral healthcare professionals with the skills, knowledge, attitudes and support to more effectively intervene and engage with those at risk of suicide.  The course is available for free to medical providers and will take place at Magellan’s Learning and Performance Center (4801 E. Washington St., Phoenix). To register visit Magellan’s Learning Website.

Reducing suicides is one of our 5 Winnable Battles at DHS.  Our Office of Prevention in Behavioral Health works with Magellan and all the Regional and Tribal Behavioral Health Authorities across the state.
