The Intersection of Opioid Abuse, Overdose, and Suicide: Understanding the Connections

Event Date
Add to Calendar 2018-06-05 15:00:00 2018-06-05 15:00:00 The Intersection of Opioid Abuse, Overdose, and Suicide: Understanding the Connections Opioid overdose and suicide are among the leading causes of preventable death in the United States. A growing body of research suggests that these two major health concerns are closely linked. This webinar will examine current research on the connections between opioid abuse, overdose, and suicide. The webinar will look at national data—exploring what they reveal about the relationship between these problems and what is still not known—as well as some of the ways state-, tribe-, and jurisdiction-level data can fill critical data gaps. Expert presenters will describe some of the populations at increased risk for both overdose and suicide death, and explore factors that contribute to these risks. Participants will also explore opportunities for collaborating across sectors to launch a coordinated response to opioid abuse and suicide, and hear examples from the field where this work is already underway.
