Veterans for Dallas tx area
To do this, you need to know what services already exist, how clients (or a population of interest) learn about the services available to them, what types of interventions can be accessed if they are suicidal, and whether these interventions are culturally appropriate and offered in a way clients feel comfortable accessing or if they are missing altogether.
This assignment consists of three parts: a resource list, a literature review, and an intervention idea. The three parts build upon each other. In this first part of the assignment, take a close look at the resources in your community. What programs exist for those experiencing suicidal ideations or who have made suicide attempts? Start with a broad look at what your community offers. After you have identified the resources, identify a specific population (veterans, youth, elderly) you might work with in the future and examine the resources available to them.
Provide a brief description of your identified population
Create a list of the resources you found, categorizing them as prevention, intervention, and postvention or noting if no resources exist for that type
Explain how the information about these programs is distributed
Describe your understanding of how the services are accessed and if they are culturally appropriate for your community
Identify the gaps and barriers that exist that might keep someone from accessing service
