Managing Depressed and Suicidal Inmates

After inmates are identified as being at risk for suicide or are suspected of being at risk for suicide, staff must follow suicide prevention policies and procedures. Correctional officers play a significant role in managing at-risk inmates during this critical time by providing direct supervision and support. This course examines the five steps officers should take and illustrates how to communicate effectively with these inmates. It also discusses the impact of a suicide on staff and inmates, the support services available to deal with a completed suicide, and the types of reviews conducted after a suicide.
