The Intersection of Substance Use and Suicide

Thursday, July 18th
8:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Room: 
Grapevine D
Description: 

Those who have been treated for substance misuse often have co-occurring mental health problems including depression, PTSD, anxiety disorders, and some personality disorders. Additionally, people with substance use disorders are at elevated risk for suicidal ideation and attempts. In fact, suicide is a leading cause of death among people who misuse alcohol and drugs. This session will explore the dual dynamics of substance use disorder and suicide and increase participants' knowledge of warning signs and who is most at risk for suicide.

At the end of the training session, the participants will be able to: 

1. Gain knowledge about the intersection of substance use and suicide
2. Understand who is most at risk for co-occurring mental health disorders and identify situational “clues” or warning signs for suicide
3. Develop next steps to address substance misuse and suicide in your community.
