In medical terms, the world is shifting from a pandemic to an endemic after COVID. The mental health consequences of this 100-year phenomenon continue to reverberate in the collective societal psyche, as well as within the hearts and minds of individuals finding their way to treatment amid the “new normal.” This workshop, for psychologists, licensed mental health professionals, medical professionals, and ministry leaders, will look at the altered psychological landscape and its implications for trends in suicide and self-harm, as well as prevention strategies for children, adolescents, and adults. And, tragically, when well-meaning interventions fail and prevention strategies prove insufficient, this workshop will also outline a pathway to postvention, the emotional release necessary for those tragically linked to the trauma of suicide, whether attempted or realized.

Learning Objectives

1. Utilize increased awareness when assessing patients for risk of suicide.
2. Utilize specific prevention strategies tailored to the individual’s circumstances and convert them into a specialized treatment plan.
3. List the characteristics of a postvention model of trauma recovery into an individual’s plan.
