Suicide Prevention & Substance Use: Justice-Involved Clients

Suicide remains a leading cause of death in our country, affecting all segments of the population. People just released from prison are at higher-risk of suicide, particularly if they also struggle with substance use. This webinar will present lessons learned from a research study that evaluates the effectiveness of the Safety Planning Intervention, a strategy for reducing suicide events among people transitioning from jail to the community.

Jennifer Johnson Principal Investigator Dr. Jennifer E. Johnson will describe the nature of the problem and ways to reduce suicide events, given frequent substance use in this high-risk population. Read Dr. Johnson's complete bio here
