Suicide and Suicide Prevention in the Fire Service

This presentation will review what is known, and more importantly what isn’t known, about fire fighter suicide. Participants will learn about suicide prevention and suicide postvention (defined as an organized response in the aftermath of a suicide to facilitate the healing of individuals from the grief and distress of suicide loss) mitigate other negative effects of exposure to suicide and prevent suicide among people at high risk after exposure to suicide. Content will include effective suicide prevention strategies, evidence-based treatments for suicide, resources for suicide loss and new IAFF efforts to understand and address suicide.
