According to Missouri’s Department of Health and Senior Services, on average, 1 person in Missouri dies by suicide every 7 hours . Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in Missouri and nationally. It is the 2nd leading cause of death among 10-34 years-old, 4th leading cause of death among 35-54 years-old, and 2nd leading cause of death in Missouri among youth/young adults ages 10-24. Suicide rates have increased by over 30% since 1999.
This workshop emphasizes the importance for all clinicians to be aware of the risk factors for suicide, available screening and assessment techniques and instruments, short term safety interventions built for present moment prevention, and longer term empirically supported treatments.
