Recent survey data from SAMHSA indicates that there are 12 million American adults that thought seriously about suicide in 2019. Many people who are suicidal end up in emergency departments or are hospitalized in part because clinicians may not be confident in their ability to effectively treat them and may resort to defensive practices (e.g., potentially unnecessary hospitalizations) fearing malpractice liability. As part of Project 2025, AFSP is focusing on reducing suicide deaths in relation to emergency department and healthcare system engagement. Christine Moutier, M.D., AFSP’s Chief Medical Officer, David Jobes, Ph.D., professor and creator of CAMS, and Ms. Diana Cortez Yanez, a leading voice from the lived-experience perspective, will team up to discuss current systems of care along with evidence-based best practices for optimal clinical suicide prevention.

Topics will include:

  • use of evidence-based assessments
  • treatments
  • the use of medications
  • decreasing malpractice risk through sound clinical practices

The goal is to raise awareness about effective clinical care for suicide risk and the importance of creating lives worth living.
