Cultural Considerations in BIPOC and LGBTQIA Youth Suicide Prevention

Over the past several years the rates of suicide for Hispanic, Black, Asian and Pacific Islander youth have seen significant increases, while the rate of suicide amongst White youth has decreased.  Additionally, the risk of suicide among 2SLGBTQIA+ youth is three times that of their heterosexual and cisgender peers. (Chu, J., O’Neill, S.E., Ng, J.F., Khoury, O. (2022). The Cultural Theory and Model of Suicide for Youth.)

Using the Cultural Theory and Model of Suicide for Youth participants will explore the role of culture as a risk factor as a well as a protective factor.  We will explore strategies to break down barriers, increase cultural humility amongst providers and apply culturally responsive strategies in suicide prevention.
