Doctoral candidate to present talk titled “Understanding Suicidality and How to Help”

As part of the Rocky River Public Library Summer Programming 2020, this virtual talk will be geared toward community individuals who are interested in learning common myths and facts about suicide, risk and protective factors, warning signs, and how to offer/seek help, including how to approach the conversation with someone you are worried about, a very brief overview of treatments, coping skills, and local/national resources. Interested individuals can go to the Rocky River Public Library website and register for free.

The talk will be presented by Silvia Hernandez, MA, a Clinical Psychology Doctoral Candidate at Case Western Reserve University. Her research focuses on suicide, hope/hopelessness, and older adult populations.
