Standard definitions of suicidal behavior, as well as common data elements and analyses across settings, are needed to advance the state of suicide care and research. In this webinar, sponsored by the National Council for Behavioral Health in partnership with the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention and the National Institute of Mental Health, participants will hear about opportunities like using “big data” from medical records to improve risk detection and establishing clearinghouses for policy and practice changes to be studied further. The webinar will be on June 24, 2–3p.m. ET.
