The Beyond the Basics conference serves as a “best practice” conference offering participants in-depth and progressive information and the latest research in the field of suicide and suicide prevention. The conference is designed for an adult audience that has attained basic training and knowledge in suicide and suicide prevention, and wishes to expand their knowledge and ability to engage in suicide prevention in Maine. The 2015 theme, “Beyond the Basics in Suicide Prevention: Pathway to Prevention — Working Toward Zero Suicide in Maine” guides a program of the most up-to-date research on suicidology and evidence-based tools, and provides participants with information to use in everyday practical applications. This year’s conference features national leading experts on suicide assessment and prevention, a learning experience not to be missed.
