Live Event – Suicide Awareness, Assessment, & Prevention Strategies

This is a Live Event for PsychU members in the Birmingham, AL area.

This presentation will look at multiple aspects pertaining to suicide awareness, assessment, and prevention strategies. We will start by discussing common terminology used in suicidology, move to the prevalence globally and within the US, transition to the possible relationships between suicide and psychiatric illnesses, and end with conversations around assessment tools and additional resources for patients and caregivers.  This presentation is intended to facilitate conversations around suicide and mental health and help identify opportunities within local communities for collaborative partnerships.
