Recorded Event - January 21, 2021
3:00-4:00 p.m. ET
The rate of suicide is now at its highest level since 1941, and suicide is the second leading cause of death of those between the ages of 10 and 34. However, with risk identification and the right resources and support, many suicides can be prevented. In this session, we will explore how across industries and roles, we have the ability to spot warning signs or someone in distress, and we have an opportunity to provide education about suicide prevention, connect individuals to appropriate interventions and improve our overall mental well-being.
In this session, we will discuss:
- The latest suicide trends and their impact on our communities
- Risk factors including health factors such as depression and substance use disorder, and environmental factors such as grief and other stressful events
- How employers can play an active role in supporting employees’ mental and emotional health to prevent suicide
- New resources and interventions to reduce suicide.
