Last month, the RLC’s Director of Training, Caroline Mazel-Carlton, was featured in O Magazine talking about Alternatives to Suicide.
This month, you’ll find her featured in the Community Psychologist talking even more in depth about this approach!
A brief excerpt:
“Most clinical protocols do not actually allow for conversation on suicide at all. Agencies are locked into the risk assessment-hospitalization-risk assessment feedback loop. Since we now know that acute hospitalization only increases suicide rates, clearly, we need to have an alternative. Peer support is a way to avoid the standard clinical interventions that are often driven by fears of liability or loss of licensure.”
