Self-harm in teenagers: The spectrum from nonsuicidal self-injury to suicidality
July 7 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health Learning Institute is pleased to bring to you a hybrid training, Self-harm in teenagers: The spectrum from nonsuicidal self-injury to suicidality featuring Dr. Marshall Korenblum, an expert speaker and psychiatrist at Garry Hurvitz Centre for Community Mental Health at SickKids. Join us on July 7 in-person at the Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning in the heart of downtown Toronto or join us virtually.
As cited by *new research from The Hospital for Sick Children, there has been a sharp increase in emergency department visits for attempted suicide and suicide ideation among children and adolescents during COVID-19. While there was a 32 per cent reduction in pediatric ED visits for any health-related reasons during the pandemic, there was an alarming 22 per cent increase in the number of children and adolescents going to EDs for suicide attempts and an eight per cent increase in visits for suicide ideation.
This presentation will include two workshops; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You can choose to join us for one session or attend for the full day.
Morning Session (9 a.m. to noon): Non-suicidal, self-harm in teenagers: The role of emotion regulation in understanding and treating this urgent problem
Afternoon Session (1 to 4 p.m.): Suicide in teenagers: Signs, symptoms and risk factors
