Reducing Suicide Ideation Through Mindfulness
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm Central | Live Online
The CDC reports that 45,979 people died by suicide in the United States in 2020, which is 1 death every 11 minutes. The loss of life in this manner is heartbreaking, unnecessary and it impacts all of us collectively. While death by suicide is multi-dimensional, research shows that mindfulness interventions can contribute to the reduction of suicide ideation. Empowering individuals with skills to mitigate risk factors such as stress, sleep disruptions, unhealthy thought patterns, and self-critical judgment, is essential to cultivating awareness and self-understanding and creating lasting change. This, in conjunction with other clinical interventions, can increase the likelihood that individuals can successfully navigate difficult thoughts, emotions and experiences that may lead to suicide ideation.
