2017 Suicide Prevention Conference: Pillars of Prevention
September 18 @ 8:00 am - September 19 @ 5:00 pm
Last year, nearly 300 suicide prevention stakeholders joined together in Albany, NY for the first Annual New York State Suicide Prevention Conference. The NYS OMH Suicide Prevention Office and the Suicide Prevention Center of New York will host the 2nd conference September 18-19, 2017. The purpose of the conference is to promote collaboration across disciplines in the areas of research, surveillance, clinical and community interventions. This Call for Presentations & Posters will give preference to submissions in each of these categories that align with the three strategies of the NYS Suicide Prevention Plan.
1. Prevention in Health and Behavior Healthcare Settings;
2. Prevention across the Lifespan in Communities; and
3. Surveillance and Data to Inform Suicide Prevention.
