CHIP takes a "whole health" approach, with topics that include:
Idaho had the fifth-highest suicide rate in the nation in 2017 and those numbers aren’t decreasing.
St. Luke’s Behavioral Health presents a webinar by licensed psychologist Christopher A. Edwards, Ph.D., in which we will learn about national and local statistics, be introduced to new ways of talking about suicide, learn who’s at risk and identify signs to watch for.
Most importantly you will learn what you can do to help someone experiencing thoughts of suicide.
Education will be provided and there will be time for some questions from the audience. This webinar doesn't provide treatment or specific treatment recommendations for any individuals. If you are in need of treatment, please contact your primary care provider or behavioral health care provider.
If you are in need of immediate support, call or text the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline: (208) 398-4357.
