Introduction to Suicide Prevention

Thursday
8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
Regency D

This presentation will introduce suicide prevention and intervention to anyone who encounters students or individuals on a regular basis. Often those that are feeling suicidal or having suicidal thoughts reach out to someone they trust first, who may not have any training in suicide intervention. It is critically important, given the rising suicide rate, that as many people as possible are able to engage around intervention. The presenters will give an overview of the statistics around suicide, a look at common risk factors and also individual risk factors, warning signs, concrete steps around talking with someone who is suicidal, and finally resources, like Talking Together that can be used by teachers, administrators, family, or anyone else.
