Description: This program will cover the scope of the problem of suicide with attention to the recent shocking upward trend. The presenter will review the history and range of suicidality — from “romantic” and “noble,” through active verses passive — and examine the profile of the high-risk person and what is described by some survivors and in some suicide notes as “triggers.” For the young, is it a result of bullying? For older adults, does it reflect discouragement about the state of the world, or their health? How about well-off celebrities who seemingly have it all? This presentation will address the phenomenon of suicide as a public health emergency. It will address the antecedents to suicide, describe warning signs, and propose interventions that are within the scope of nursing practice.
