MEETINGS AND PRESENTATIONS (Early 2016)

Symposium entitled El Suicidio: Prevencion y Manejo Clinico, March 2, 2016. This educational event will present current data on suicide especially on Latinos and what practices are available to prevent suicide. Dr. Luis Zayas will be the key speaker that together with local experts will address the topics in different populations (i.e., age, gender, military). Since SAMHSA is currently marketing a new suicide application in Spanish the agency is also invited to share the extent of the applicability of this new tool.
