The Intersection of Substance Use and Suicide: Understanding the Connection (Pre-Conference Training)

The Intersection of Substance Use and Suicide: Understanding the Connection (Pre-Conference Training) 

The relationship between substance use disorders and suicidal thinking and behaviors is complicated. General population data show a connection between suicide, major depression, and prescription drug use. Adults who abuse opioids are also more likely to engage in suicide planning and attempts. This session will present data and research to shed light on these connections. Presenters will explore the implications of this information for prevention and early intervention, including opportunities for collaboration. This preconference workshop is presented in collaboration with the Great Lakes PTTC and the Suicide Prevention Resource Center.
