Suicide Resource Guide - Check it out 

Editor's note: This was a one-year project to show a small portion of the information released in 2018 regarding suicide and the changes that are happening or not. A lot happened in 2018 yet in Oregon and many other states, there is no required training in suicidality prior to receiving certification as a therapist nor any continuing education requirements to renew the license after receiving the initial certification. In a country and state that surpasses its previous suicide record, this approach with "helping" clients in crisis is outrageous. Yet COBAT and other trade groups feel that the increased time and expense to get this training isn't necessary and their members should never be required to have any training in suicidality. We object, your honor. And we hope those of you who choose therapy reject any therapist who hasn't had at least six hours on continuing education in the subject in the last six years. Is that too much to ask? - Gordon Clay
