The Ohio State University Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health presents:
2021 SUICIDE PREVENTION CONFERENCE: SUICIDE PREVENTION IN THE MIDST OF SOCIAL DISRUPTION
EIGHTH ANNUAL SUICIDE PREVENTION CONFERENCE
Friday, September 10
8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
It's an unfortunate reality that the current pandemic and other recent events of social unrest will lead to an increased suicide risk for certain populations. Social distancing and quarantines or fear of harm may cause individuals to experience feelings of social and emotional isolation and trigger those currently dealing with suicidal thoughts. Research shows the social and economic fallout from these events may amplify the risk for some people even long after the events have occurred.
The Ohio State University Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health addresses these issues with the “2021 Suicide Prevention Conference: Suicide Prevention in the Midst of Social Disruption,” in the hopes of bringing together experts to address these concerns and to find new and effective ways of staying connected so that others can share them with to those who need it most.
Registration opens June 15, 2021
