Preventing suicide in older adults; webinar, online toolkit
Thursday, September 17, 2015, 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM EDT
September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and older adults have a higher risk of suicide than the general population, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Several factors may be involved, but suicide is preventable.
You can learn about this public health issue by joining the National Council on Aging for the “Suicide Prevention and Older Adults” webinar next week. Expert speakers will highlight risk factors for suicide among older adults and will discuss successful strategies for preventing suicide.
Additionally, this webinar is an opportunity to learn more about the recently released toolkit, Promoting Emotional Health and Preventing Suicide: A Toolkit for Senior Centers. You can read more about the toolkit at the ACL Blog.
