Managing Depressed and Suicidal Juvenile Offenders

Juvenile careworkers play a critical role in identifying suicidal juveniles and managing them during this time by providing direct supervision and support. In most cases, following the suicide prevention plan and paying attention to details can be the difference between life and death for juveniles.

This course discusses how to identify juveniles at risk for suicide during intake and throughout their stay. It examines how to build a relationship with juveniles, write proper documentation about suicidal behavior, talk with suicidal and depressed youth, de-escalate crises, and respond to self-injurious or suicidal behavior. Finally, the course explores the stages of grief, how to help juveniles throughout the process, and the facility’s response to a suicide.
