Join us June 14, 2021 from 6pm-7:30 pm (EST) for a FREE Live Webinar
A death by suicide can have a lasting effect on individuals and communities. The professional response to a suicide death, often referred to as postvention, is often led by mental health professionals who may be simultaneously impacted by the loss. This presentation will focus on the experience of suicide grief and its impact on individuals, impact and communities, explain what we know about suicide risk in suicide loss survivors and share resources for clinicians to help support suicide loss survivors as well as to guide postvention efforts.
CE hours available for behavioral health clinicians.

- Suicide has been a major public health issue for some time. AFSP launched Project 2025 to lead a plan of action aimed at the organization’s bold goal of reducing the annual suicide rate 20 percent by 2025.
- Project 2025 ensures that AFSP can determine where best to reduce suicide through the most promising programs and interventions.
- We know that we can’t do Project 2025 alone. And, reducing the rate of suicide 20 percent will require an all-out effort from leaders across all industry sectors and communities nationwide to implement the most effective programs, policies and interventions that will save the most lives in the shortest amount of time.
- From research in the suicide prevention field, we know that actions can be taken to reduce a person’s risk for suicide. Effective actions can be delivered before (days, weeks, and months) a crisis arises, so that the potential for suicide may never arise or is mitigated – and a life saved. (See Firearms and Suicide Prevention area below as example.)
