Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation Webinar: Youth Suicide Prevention: Responding to the Crisis

August 8, 2019

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among people ages 10 to 34 in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Additionally, a study published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology says depression rates among children ages 14 to 17 increased by more than 60% between 2009 and 2017.

The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is hosting a webinar titled: Youth Suicide Prevention: Responding to the Crisis. The webinar will be led by Maureen Underwood, a licensed clinical social worker, certified group psychotherapist, and nationally recognized expert on youth suicide prevention.

This webinar will explain:

  • the language about suicide
  • the school-based definition of suicide
  • the roles that enable a school to develop a comprehensive and best-practice suicide prevention strategy.
