Training: Friday, December 6, 2019 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at the McHenry County Mental Health Board, 620 Dakota Street in Crystal Lake presented by Jason Washburn, PhD, ABPP. Violence to self and others is increasingly a concern for mental health professionals. In 2017, over 47,000 people in the United States died by suicide, and suicide is the second leading cause of death for adolescents and emerging adults. Similarly, over 17,000 people in the United States dies from homicide in 2017, with homicide being the third leading cause of death for adolescents and emerging adults. This training will review the role of mental health professionals in understanding, identifying, and intervening in patients at risk for preventable death by homicide or suicide.
