Understanding and Preventing Suicide in People with IDD: Experiences Learned from a Collaborative Research Project
People with IDD present a similar suicide risk to the general population, but it remains poorly understood. This webinar will present a research program that aims to improve our understanding, assessment and prevention of suicidal behavior in people with IDD. Through a series of projects carried out in close collaboration between suicide prevention, IDD researchers and clinicians, we developed a dynamic model of suicide risk, a series of tools to support suicide prevention (assessment and intervention) and a strategy to support these tool’s use in clinical settings.
