HB 1719 Suicide Prevention Training and Education Requirements:
HB 1719 passed this legislative session and the bill includes language requiring all health care professionals to complete two hours of suicide prevention training as a condition of the initial licensure and subsequent renewals. Starting September 30, 2018, the State Committee for Social Workers will require evidence of this training to be included with the initial application for licensure and, beginning with the 2019 renewal period, necessary for license renewal. This course can be completed via self-study or in-person. Attached to the LBSW/LMSW, LCSW and Reciprocity applications you will find a form stating you attest that you completed the minimum of two (2) hours of training in the areas of suicide, assessment, treatment, referrals and management. Failure to do so will delay the processing of your application or renewal.
