This summer, in the wake of two celebrity suicides and the release of the CDC report highlighting an alarming rise in the US suicide rate, the public's attention was drawn to the significant public health problem of suicide. Because alcohol and drug use greatly increases suicide risk, it is critical to integrate suicide prevention into substance use early intervention and treatment. This webinar describes suicide as a public health problem and explains how suicide screening and intervention can be integrated into the SBIRT model.
