The foundational objective of this presentation is to educate the participants on the impact of suicide globally in contrast to the impact of suicide in the United States. To fulfill this objective, the information for this presentation will primarily come from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Information from the World Health Organization will be included to describe the latest statistics and intervention standards internationally. National information from the Center for Disease Control that includes statistics on the current rate of suicide and national objectives for the United States will be discussed.
The second objective of this presentation is to disseminate intervening factors to impact the rate of suicide. Global best practices from the WHO, national best practices from the CDC, and research-based assessments will be discussed to provide the participants with information that will engage the organizations that they represent.
The third objective would be to itemize the top two intervening steps for a person in crisis; provide information about the national hotline for suicide and the three digit (988) hotline numbers.
These three objectives will nourish the participants understanding of global, national, and suicide crisis best practices that should ultimately lead to a margin of suicide prevention.
1. Identify the suicide rate of at least five continents.
2. Describe the purpose of the World Health Organization (WHO) Registration form for non-fatal suicidal behavior/attempted suicide and prevention.
3. Explain the purpose of the WHO toolkit for community engagement in suicide prevention.
4. Identify at least two state and community interventions prescribed by the Center for Disease control for suicidal behavior.
5. Understand the application of the 2020 Compliance Standards to lead, train, identify, engage, treat, transition, and improve best practices
