Suicide Research and Public Health Practice Webinar
ICRC-S Launches New Webinar and Conference Call Series to Start in January 2013: The Intersection of Suicide Research and Public Health Practice
The Injury Control Research Center for Suicide Prevention (ICRC-S), a new CDC-funded research center focusing on a public health approach to suicide research and suicide prevention, is launching a series of monthly webinars and conference calls starting in January 2013. Developed by the University of Rochester Medical Center and the Education Development Center, the ICRC-S draws suicide prevention directly into the domain of public health and injury prevention and links it to complementary approaches to mental health. The ICRC-S webinar series, The Intersection of Suicide Research and Public Health Practice, will explore the perspectives and approaches of suicide researchers and of state and local injury prevention and suicide prevention practitioners.
The goal of the series is to promote a dialogue between researchers and practitioners, enabling them to identify new, collaborative projects that will inform and enhance suicide prevention and research efforts. Topics to be addressed in the series include:
The public health approach to suicide research and suicide prevention
Domestic violence and suicide
Suicide among military veterans
Suicide and the media.
The webinars will be held on the second Wednesday of the month from 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The dates of the upcoming webinars are:
Each webinar will be accompanied a week later by a follow-up conference call, which will provide an opportunity for in-depth discussion of the material presented in the preceding webinar. The conference calls will be held on the third Wednesday of the month from 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The dates of the conference calls are:
