Course Overview:
Pediatric patients can be impacted by mental health problems such as depression and stress, and their abilities to cope with those problems can be challenging. Unfortunately, the pediatric population is not exempt from detrimental situations such as suicide. In that regard, it is important to include screenings for suicide risk factors in pediatrics throughout clinical practices to assess suicide risk, and to implement strategies that can potentially prevent suicide attempts or successful acts from occurring. As clinicians, we must all assume responsibility for conducting screenings for suicide risk factors that can assist in recognizing behaviors of concern that indicate the need for interventions.
