Suicide in Context
Copyright :


This session will cover often overlooked factors that play a role in suicide risk for individuals and particular communities. Working with individuals who are at risk of suicide requires a whole-person approach that takes into account that person’s environment and experiences. The public health approach to suicide prevention will be explored, including identification of risk factors that are systemic and cultural in nature. Considerations for safe messaging to reduce social contagion will be covered, as well as considerations related to diverse identities and marginalized communities. Attendees will be empowered to work more effectively with people experiencing suicidal ideations in their direct clinical work and to advocate for needed changes to stop the rising number of lives lost to suicide in America.
