Virtual Forum: Social Determinants Of Behavioral Health: Addressing Suicide In The Community

Location: Online Via PsychU.org

Description:
In 2015 suicide was the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S., claiming the lives of an estimated 44,193 people,1 and it takes a toll on victims, their families, and the community. Behavioral health professionals from all disciplines work tirelessly to understand and prevent such tragedies. During this Virtual Forum you’ll hear about one community’s experience in suicide prevention from Chelsey Patriss, BA, Executive Director of The Community Health Network of North Central Massachusetts, an organization committed to reducing negative health outcomes, such as suicide, by addressing the social determinants of health through the collaborative effort of community partners. Ms. Patriss and Moderator Rachel Self, MS, PhD, Senior Medical Science Liaison for Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization, Inc. (OPDC), will offer insight into what communities can do to identify and address social factors that may be related to suicide.

If you or someone you know is in crisis, please contact the Suicide Prevention Hotline / Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), or text the Crisis Text Line at 741-741.
