In this webinar we hear from suicide prevention experts on data-driven approaches to address the intersecting suicide and opioid crisis, the shared risk and protective factors to address both, and the value and application of syndromic surveillance for response and prevention.

Suicide and opioid overdose deaths continue to climb year after year. The age-adjusted rate of deaths from suicide and unintentional overdose have more than doubled since 2000 according to mortality data from the CDC, and these epidemics seem to be rising together. How can we better understand the interconnected nature of suicide and opioid misuse to promote effective response and prevention?

Hear suicide prevention experts share their research and experience on:

  • Relationship between suicide and opioid overdose mortality at the community level.
  • Shared risk and protective factors of the overlap between suicidality and opioid misuse and overdose.
  • Value and application of syndromic surveillance for suicide response and prevention, including intentional opioid overdose.
