Suicide Prevention in Custody DVD
This video (DVD) teaches staff about the impact and rate of suicides in custody and ways to prevent them. A death by suicide causes severe stress among staff and offenders. Despite the circumstances surrounding a suicide, questions often arise about whether reasonable care was provided. By following recognized policies, procedures, and practices, staff can prevent most suicides in custody. This video will help correctional staff prevent suicides from occurring in their facilities. Suicide Prevention in Custody includes suicide rates in custody; identifying potentially suicidal offenders during the admissions process; the influence of the correctional environment and staff attitudes on suicidal behavior; identifying potentially suicidal offenders in custody; and the role of the correctional worker in preventing suicides.
