In the last several decades, suicide attempts among black adolescents has increased by 73% while attempts among white youth have decreased. Why aren't we sounding the alarm and doing more to raise awareness of this crisis?
During this workshop we will discuss the additional challenges faced by black youth, explore strategies to break down barriers, increase cultural competency amongst providers and the role of racial socialization as a protective strategy in reducing suicide attempts amongst black youth.
