Webinar: Screening Youth for Suicide Risk

The suicide rate among U.S. youth and young adults, ages 10 to 24, has risen in recent years, increasing by nearly 50 percent between 2007 and 2017, and reaching its highest point since 2000 according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2017, 6769 suicides occurred among youth and young adults ages 10 to 24 years, of which 5375 were male and 1394 were female.
 
Early detection of suicide risk through screening is an important method of identifying those at risk. Research-based screening and assessment tools are available for use in multiple settings. 

Learn more about the background data on suicide and suicidal behavior among youth and young adults and discuss suicide prevention research in screening in both medical and school settings in the Webinar. The webinar hosted by the US-based Children's Safety Network will take place on July, 30 2019 from 3:00 - 4:00 pm EST or 9:00 - 10:00 pm CET.
