The Mountain Plains Mental Health Technology Transfer Center and the Mountain Plains Prevention Technology Transfer Center collaborated to host a six-part webinar series, Suicide Prevention Across the Educational Continuum. Throughout the series, participants are provided with information related to suicide prevention and intervention for youth, young adults, and college students.
Suicide Interventions and Response for Youth Experiencing Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED)
Special consideration must be given to engaging in suicide intervention and response for youth and adolescents. This session will provide participants with an overview of best practices for addressing suicidal behaviors and thoughts for youth and adolescents experiencing Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED). Focus will be placed on understanding the definition of SED, engaging in interdisciplinary care for SED youth, best practices for working with youth experiencing SED and their families, and implications for suicide intervention and prevention with this population.
