IPS Fall Symposium Explores The Tragedy of Suicide

The most devastating of outcomes in mental health, a completed suicide, has lasting effects on a patient’s families, friends, community, and care providers. The exact nature of these effects can be difficult to understand, however. Furthermore, what happens when those tasked with caring for individuals with mental illness succumb to the very thing they are supposed to prevent? With a recent rash of suicides and increasing rates of provider burn out, more attention than ever is being paid to the monitoring and prevention of suicide.

This event, to be accredited for 4.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits, will highlight some of the many ways suicide by patients and providers may impact survivors. We’ll hear from a physician survivor of a spouse's suicide. We'll address the significant impact of suicide in the community at large and on a more individual level, with a focus on risk identification and prevention. And finally, we will discuss issues of liability when a patient attempts or successfully completes suicide.  Please join us for this critical discussion.

Registration opens June 17.
