Suicide Awareness: Debunking Myths, Reducing Stigma, and Bolstering Understanding of Youth Suicide Risk
Suicide continues to be one of the leading causes of death for transition aged youth (15-24 years old). Increases in suicide rates for students aged 5 to 15 also have been observed over the last several years. Suicide Awareness is the first step in preventing youth suicide and supporting youth at risk of suicide.
This webinar will focus on the following learning objectives:
1. Increase awareness of the myths and stigma behind suicide
2. Identify common risk and protective factors for youth at risk of suicide.
3. Identify warning signs for youth at risk of suicide.
