On Tuesday, April 21, 2015, 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time the ICRC-S conducted the webinar “Exploring the Impact of Suicide Prevention Research in Schools,” with speakers Holly Wilcox, Ph.D. of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Peter Wyman, Ph.D. of the University of Rochester Medical Center. In partnership with families and communities, our nation’s schools are obvious places to identify youth at risk of suicide, and they can also play a critical role in preventing youth suicide. The webinar speakers addressed suicide prevention research that is being conducted in schools, discuss the known impact the research has made, and identify needed research and practice going forward. This session was moderated by Nathan Belyeu of the Suicide Prevention Resource Center.
