A message from Jacquelyn Rivera, LCSW, PPSC – Program Coordinator II, Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services.

This presentation provides an overview of youth suicide prevention and discusses the nature of suicide, risk factors, suicide-related statistics, myths, and warning signs focused on youth. Key points of the discussion include how to assess for lethality, how to manage a young person who is suicidal, and how to gain valuable information on resource referrals.
