Youth suicide has become a significant public concern as suicide rates have been increasing over the last several years. The presentation will focus on the importance of identifying adolescent risk factors and warning signs for suicide. It is important to understand the developmental issues that may impact suicidal ideations and suicidal behaviors in adolescents since youths maybe more susceptible to the negative impacts of psychosocial stressors. Additionally, the course will discuss specific diversity and cultural factors that need to be addressed when providing a comprehensive risk assessment.

The program will also address interventional strategies for the management of suicide risk. Using an ecological framework, the presentation will highlight the importance of including peers and parents in developing management strategies that involve various stakeholders in the adolescents’ lives.
