POSTPONED: Suicidality in men – a practical approach to management
UPDATE: This talk has now been postponed – we will advise of the new date when it is finalised.
While we can always improve men’s access to mental health services, a significant number of men who die by suicide have already accessed mental health treatment.
When considering suicide risk in men, look beyond mental health narratives and focus on high risk groups such as separated dads, unemployed men and men in financial distress. An important risk factor for suicide in younger men is “intimate partner problems”.
While it seems logical to focus on men with a history of suicidality, most men kill themselves at the first known attempt. In this webcast on 8 June, honorary psychiatrist, Royal Melbourne Hospital, Clinical A/Prof David Horgan, will cover the different approaches needed to deal with men at risk of suicide.
Attendees will be eligible for:
RACGP: 4 CPD activity points
ACRRM: 2 hours under the educational activities category
Pharmacists: currently seeking accreditation
