  • National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day 2019
    All day
    05/06/19

    Suicide is a serious public health problem that causes immeasurable pain, suffering, and loss to individuals, families, and communities nationwide. Everyone has a role to play in preventing suicide.

    That’s why the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is making suicide prevention the focus of its National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day 2019 event. “Suicide Prevention: Strategies That Work,” will showcase evidence-based strategies that can save lives, and will connect those in need to information, services, and supports.

    The SAMHSA event will include suicide prevention experts and senior government officials, along with a family member and youth who will share evidence-based practices that help save lives. The engaging format will provide an opportunity to educate state agency personnel; primary care and mental health care providers; child-serving professionals; and families, youth, and young adults across the country about the latest evidence-based practices and resources for suicide prevention.

    Tune in on Monday, May 6 at 3 p.m. EDT to watch the live webcast through this link: https://www.hhs.gov/live.

  • Hot Topics in Practice – Finding Strength in Small Numbers: Epidemiology in Urban Indian Communities
    12:00 pm-1:00 pm
    05/21/19America/Anchorage

    In the May session of Hot Topics in Practice, Adrian Dominguez, MS, Scientific Director for the Urban Indian Health Institute in Seattle, explores how public health professionals can approach working with small numbers and small data sets to better understand the health of indigenous populations.

    This one-hour webinar will review how racial misclassification and limited analysis have excluded American Indian and Alaska Native populations from health assessments and community conversations, and what can be done to be more inclusive. Dominguez will share examples from his organization’s work to document the health of urban Indian communities and offer their strategies for correcting racial misclassification and small numbers suppression.

    Register today to learn about correcting individual, institutional, and cultural biases to better support health.
