Suicide risk can be understood in terms of stress typically resulting from a psychiatric illness, most commonly depression present in about 90% of all suicides, and/or an external stressor involving life events. This is often a combination of a heightened perception of emotional distress, greater propensity to act on emotion, less learning and problem-solving capacity, hypersensitivity to negative social signals, and diminished sensitivity to positive social signals. Suicide risk can be influenced by acute alcohol or drug abuse adversely impacting mood or disinhibition. This session will allow participants to discuss the reality of suicide risk as well as offer suggestions of how to handle the situation should someone die by suicide. Part of the discussion will be around the experiences of those who attempted or completed suicide.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Reduce prejudice about mental disorders and suicide increasing the likelihood of the person informing others about symptoms and seeking help.
  • Implement trauma-responsive policies and practices ensuring the person is treated to promote healing and recovery.
  • Offer social support, resiliency training, problem-solving skills, and other protective factors to the person and supporters.
  • Help the person and supporters maintain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health and well-being.
