Giving Tuesday ft. Scott Poland, Ph.D. on Suicide Prevention in the Age of COVID-19
Suicide rates in America were at a 50 year high in 2018 before the pandemic. Particular concerns noted in the 2018 CDC report were a dramatic increase in suicide for middle school age students, military veterans, and middle-aged men. Historically research has found that during pandemics and other times of high unemployment and financial hardship suicide rates have increased. This webinar will dispel the most common myths about suicide and help everyone understand the warning signs of suicide and what to do to get help if someone is suicidal. Suicide prevention is everyone’s responsibility and has never been more important than right now.
