Workshop on Preventing Youth Suicide, Mar. 29-30

NIH will convene a Pathways to Prevention Workshop: Advancing Research to Prevent Youth Suicide on Mar. 29-30 in Masur Auditorium, Bldg. 10. A panel will identify research gaps and future research priorities. 

Suicide was the second leading cause of death for youth (10- to 24-year-olds) in 2014, resulting in 5,504 deaths in the United States. This mortality has not decreased compared to other external causes of death; youth suicide attempts have remained at consistent rates for decades. 

The Office of Disease Prevention, NIMH, NIDA and NCCIH are sponsoring the workshop. Sign language interpreters will be provided. Those who need reasonable accommodation to participate should contact Deborah Langer via email at langerdh@od.nih.gov.

For more information and to register for the workshop, which is free and open to the public, visit https://prevention.nih.gov/programs-events/pathways-to-prevention/workshops/suicide-prevention.
