About the event

Culture should be at the forefront of our thinking when we discuss suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention. We all come from diverse backgrounds with significant differences that are fundamental to consider in our interactions in providing support, resources, and services. During the summit, we will seek to understand suicide and suicide attempts within the context of the person's culture, subculture, generational differences, social position, language, religion/spirituality, cultural characteristics, gender identity, values, and beliefs that can create or function both as risk factors in seeking support for traumatic and emotional disturbances as well as function as protective factors that provide support and encourage help-seeking behaviors and attitude.
