The Joint Commission designated suicide a sentinel event. Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for US youth age 10 to 24 and accounts for 5,900 of 40,000 deaths from suicide each year. This webinar provided participants the tools to better screen for suicide and thus be part of a lifesaving network of care.
