Description

Adolescent Suicide Prevention: Recognizing Teens at Risk & Responding Effectively

Suicide is a major public health concern. Over 44,000 people die by suicide each year in the United States. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people aged 10-24 both in the United States and worldwide. Suicide is complicated and tragic but it is often preventable. Knowing the warning signs for suicide and how to get help can save lives.

Join experts for a workshop about adolescent suicide prevention, which will include techniques for early detection and management of young people at risk.

Introduction by Maryland Pao, M.D., Clinical Director, National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH)

Keynote by David A. Brent, M.D., University of Pittsburgh, What Do I Do Now? A Clinician’s Guide to the Assessment and Management of Youth at Imminent Risk for Suicidal Behavior.

Attendees at this talk with learn about how to assess for imminent suicidal risk, develop a safety plan, and about strategies for reduction in risk that cut across clinical settings, are setting-specific, and have some empirical support. Finally, we conclude with four possible approaches to clinical assessment of suicidal risk that could improve our performance in prediction and intervention over the current standard.

Other speakers include:

Lisa Horowitz, PhD, MPH, NIMH, Screening for Suicide Risk in the Medical Setting: Turning Research into Clinical Practice

Elizabeth Ballard, Ph.D., NIMH, The Neurobiology of Suicide Protocol

Attendees of this talk will learn strategies for working with suicidal patients, particularly within psychiatric inpatient settings. Ethical concerns when conducting research with suicidal individuals will also be highlighted. Lastly, recent findings on acute risk factors for suicidal thoughts, including sleep, will be presented.
