Suicide Prevention: World Class Resources to Discover Genetic Risks for Suicide Death (Part 2 of 5) Online Course

Suicide leads to over 47,000 preventable deaths annually in the U.S. alone. In addition, suicide has increased by 33% in the U.S. in the last two decades. While environment plays a critical role, suicide has a strong genetic component. With the unique resources available to the Utah Suicide Research Program, we have the opportunity to make significant contributions to the understanding of this genetic aspect of suicide risk, with the ultimate goal of development of personalized interventions. This course will give an update on research progress and how results may impact the future of prevention and treatment.

This Suicide Prevention Series is a collaboration between the Mountain Plains Mental Health Technology Transfer Center and the Mountain Plains Prevention Technology Transfer Center. Both centers are funded by SAMHSA.
