Mental health providers are the leading stewards of suicide prevention and risk management. As licensed therapists, we are ethically required to maintain skills and competency in the prevention and treatment of suicide/suicidality. Suicide represents the greatest consequence of internalized mental suffering and remains a leading cause of death in the United States. To begin addressing the problem, it’s important to learn which segments of the population face the greatest risks of suicide as well as the proper techniques to evaluate risk, treat, and prevent suicide within those vulnerable groups.
Over the past several years the rates of suicide for Hispanic, Black, Asian and Pacific Islander youth have seen significant increases, while the rate of suicide amongst White youth has decreased. Additionally, the risk of suicide among 2SLGBTQIA+ youth is three times that of their heterosexual and cisgender peers. (Chu, J., O’Neill, S.E., Ng, J.F., Khoury, O. (2022). The Cultural Theory and Model of Suicide for Youth.)
Using the Cultural Theory and Model of Suicide for Youth participants will explore the role of culture as a risk factor as a well as a protective factor. We will explore strategies to break down barriers, increase culturally humility amongst providers and apply culturally responsive strategies in suicide prevention.
