Suicide Awareness Panel
Suicide rates in the United States have risen nearly 30% since 1999, and mental health conditions are one of several factors contributing to suicide. In 2013 suicide was the 2nd leading course of death for the age 15-24 years, 2nd leading course of death among ages 25-34 years, 4th leading course of death 35-54 years and 8th among age 55-64 years. This is becoming a national epidemic that requires a multi-faceted approach. The panel discussion is to share with the audience current trends in suicide, screening tool(s) and intervention to bring awareness to the problem. While we may not have all the answers to address the increase in suicidality; sharing and bringing awareness is critical piece of confronting this problem.
