Suicide Prevention in the BIPOC Community

This training is designed to provide learners with basic information about the relationship between racial identity and suicide. More specifically, the goal is to provide learners with insight into how race and racism impact mental health on structural, institutional, communal, and individual levels for people who are racially subjugated (i.e. Black, Indigenous and People of Color, or BIPOC). We will discuss barriers to recognition and treatment as well as remedies and actions that practitioners and mental health advocates can take to reduce disparities in BIPOC populations, including a local lens on prevalence, barriers, and resources.
