ICRC-S Webinar Series to Start in January 2014

The Intersection of Suicide Research and Public Health Practice: Populations at Increased Risk of Suicidal Behaviors

The Injury Control Research Center for Suicide Prevention (ICRC-S), a CDC-funded research center focusing on a public health approach to suicide prevention and research, will begin its second annual webinar series in January 2014.  A project of the University of Rochester Medical Center and Education Development Center, the ICRC-S draws suicide prevention directly into the domain of public health and injury prevention and links it to complementary approaches to mental health. 

The webinar topics for this year’s ICRC-S webinar series, The Intersection of Suicide Research and Public Health Practice: Populations at Increased Risk of Suicidal Behaviors, will include:

  • Alcohol abuse and suicide
  • Non-suicidal self-injury
  • Suicide among men in the middle years of life
  • Suicide among American Indians/Alaska Natives
  • Individuals who have attempted suicide
  • Suicide among older adults
  • LGBT populations and suicide

Each one-hour webinar will be immediately followed by a 30-minute discussion forum.  The discussion forums will provide an opportunity for further dialogue with the webinar presenters and give webinar participants a chance to share additional information and resources related to the webinar topics.

The dates and times of the upcoming webinars and discussion forums are:

  • Wednesday, January 29th 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET
  • Wednesday, February 12th 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET
