Youth SAVE (Suicide Assessment in Various Environments) was developed by the Oregon Pediatric Society in conjunction with the Oregon Health Authority and the Association of Oregon Community Mental Health Programs. The training is delivered virtually and is designed to empower and equip school- and community-based mental health providers to assess and intervene with youth who have thoughts of suicide, both virtually and in person.
Participants are eligible to receive 7.25 CEUs through the Oregon Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers.
