Suicide Prevention In Older Adults
Department:   Psychiatry

The "golden years" are no myth, as older adults are more likely to rate their lives as happy and fulfilling than younger and middle aged individuals. Yet worldwide, suicide rates rise with age, and in the U.S. it is older men who are the highest risk segment of the population. With the oncoming wave of Baby Boomers entering later life in coming decades, the number of older adults will rise dramatically, and with it the number who die by their own hand.

In this seminar, you will learn about:

  • The epidemiology of suicide in later life
  • Factors that place seniors at risk
  • Evidence for approaches to the prevention of suicide in older adults
