  • Advances in Suicide Prevention: Research, Practice, and Policy Implications for LGBT Populations


    Thursday, July 10, 2014 - 3:00pm
    In its efforts to address behavioral health disparities, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has prioritized the goal of suicide prevention among vulnerable populations, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans. Despite strong indications of elevated risk of suicidal behavior in LGBT people, limited attention has been given to research, interventions, or suicide prevention programs targeting these populations. This webinar will offer participants up-to-date information about what is already known about LGBT suicide risk across the lifespan as well as what is being done to improve future research.Learning Objectives:Review what is known about suicide risk among LGBT populations across the lifespan.Identify gaps in research and describe how this impacts our understanding of the scope of the problem and design of prevention strategies.Describe new work to develop and test a protocol for collecting postmortem data on sexual orientation and gender identity.Explain a research-based health and mental health family support model that helps ethnically- and religiously-diverse families to support their LGBT children.Identify relevant resources available to researchers and practitioners.Please note that we do not offer CEUs or certificates for this webinar.
