The Role of Social Media in Adolescents’ Suicidal Thoughts and Behavior
October 29 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
AFSP & DBHIDS presents Research Connection: “Research Connection: The Role of Social Media in Adolescents’ Suicidal Thoughts and Behavior”
The more we understand about suicide, the more we can prevent it. AFSP-funded research is essential to our mission of saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide. Our research funding goes toward studies from neurobiological, psychosocial, and genetic perspectives, as well as topics including clinical treatment, community intervention, and survivors of suicide loss. Our grants help sponsor young investigators, engage senior researchers in suicide prevention, and foster new ideas from suicide researchers at all levels to build a scientific community.
We believe it is important to share our findings to increase public knowledge and awareness. Join us for an AFSP Research Connection Program, where you will have the opportunity to engage in a conversation with a researcher about their work and about suicide prevention.
