Free Webinar- Suicide Awareness and Intervention

ComPsych will present a live webinar called Suicide Awareness anIntervention, June 21, 10:00 am.  Recent news of celebrity suicides has heightened concern and generated interest in learning more about this important subject. Newly published research reveals that suicide rates have dramatically increased in the last decade. Suicide is a profoundly disturbing event and many people respond with confusion, fear, and anger when confronting it.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify causes of suicide and the role of social contagion

  • Describe common myths associated with suicide
  • Describe how to intervene with someone who is expressing suicidal thoughts
