Risk Factors for Suicidal Ideation in Children & Adolescents
March 11, 2024
12 PM - 1 PM - MT
This event is only offered live.
The presentation has a mix of local and national statistics about reported risk factors for children and youth aged 6-18 as well as suicide rates. I will also share common self/parent reported risk factors that have been in safety plans with the children and youth I have worked with throughout Salt Lake County. The end of the presentation goes over interventions and ways professionals and families can help implement more protective factors while being aware of and eliminating possible risk factors for suicide.
