MCAH Webinar: LGBT Youth & Suicide: Understanding & Reducing Risk
Online
Dates:
9/12/2012 1:00 PM 2:00 PM
Gay and lesbian adolescents are 3-to-5 times more likely to attempt suicide than other teenagers. But, the latest findings show that certain protective factors can lower the risk. Brian Mustanski, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Medical Social Sciences and Psychology at Northwestern University and Director of the University’s IMPACT LGBT Health and Development Program. He has conducted some of the only longitudinal cohort studies of suicidality among LGBT youth. Join him Wednesday, September 12 for a timely webinar describing research on the prevalence of suicidality, risk and protective factors, and creating awareness of how to reduce suicide risk in this vulnerable population.
