You’re invited to a special MHP Community Conversation about suicide ideation and prevention in historically under-resourced communities.
Mental Health Partners will host three nationally-recognized experts to lead a panel discussion on the topic of suicide ideation, particularly among youth in traditionally under-resourced and minoritized communities, on Monday, October 3rd at 3:00pm (Mountain time). This free panel is open to the public and will be moderated by Sara D. Anderson, MHP’s VP of Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion.
The panelists include:
- Kathryn Fox, PhD, from the University of Denver, whose focus is on LGBTQ+ youth
- Brandon Johnson, M.H.S, MCHES, an advisor at the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) who has led numerous projects to specifically prevent suicide among African American youth
- Caroline Silva, PhD, from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, who is currently developing suicide prevention interventions for at-risk individuals who identify as Hispanic/Latine
Each panelist will speak for approximately 15 minutes, allowing five minutes for questions specific to that speaker. At the conclusion of the panel presentations, there will be 15 minutes for additional questions and comments.
Registration for this event closes on Friday, September 30th at 4pm.
