Health care providers face many challenges when working with patients who are at risk for suicide. Some patients may not disclose thoughts of suicide, and even if they do, the health care provider must make judgement calls about possible future behavior, often with insufficient or contradictory information. 

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth. There are approximately 2.5 times as many deaths from suicide yearly than from homicide. Firearms cause nearly half of all suicides. For each successful suicide there are roughly 25 attempts with many attempts leading to hospitalization.
 
Please join the West Virginia Primary Care Association (WVPCA) for this free webinar with Barri Faucett, Director of Prevent Suicide WV, known for her expertise on this subject. This hour long interactive learning opportunity will address suicide prevention along with how poor mental health increases the risk and the role of gun safety. SBHCs are a critical venue for assessing not only a child's physical health, but their emotional health as well.
