Preventing Suicide Among LGBTQ+ People
This webinar is intended for physical and behavioral healthcare providers, professionals, and para-professionals.
People who identify as LGBTQ+ have higher rates of both suicide attempts and suicidal ideation. LGBTQ+ youth, in particular, have seen significant increases in suicide attempts in the recent years, often aligning with the passing of discriminatory laws or policies. While LGBTQ+ people share many risk factors and clinical needs with heterosexual or cisgender peers, the development and implementation of preventative care and interventions should also address the additional minority stressors facing this community.
This webinar will provide an overview of the critical risk and protective factors, considerations for risk assessment, and intervention strategies specific to LGBTQ+ people.Back to Events
