This webinar is designed to support the development of best practices for suicide prevention among men in the middle years of life. Bringing together panelists from the US and Ireland, this webinar will provide data on the scope of the problem, a framework for conceptualizing suicide prevention strategies, and an example of an innovative program that fits within this framework.
- Summarize the changes over time in US rates and methods for middle-aged adults with a focus on middle-aged men.
- Identify risk and precipitating factors for suicide among middle-aged men.
- Explain the “common risk approach” to suicide prevention.
- Describe a pilot program implemented in Ireland for men in the middle years who are at increased risk as a result of economic/employment issues.
