Suicide in the Elderly: Why we need to be concerned

Susan W. Lehmann, M.D., Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Director, Psychiatry Clerkships, Co-Director, Psychogeriatric Clinic, and Chair, Educational Policy Committee, Johns Hopkins University
School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD

Suicide rates continue to be high among older adults. With the aging of the U.S. population, geriatric suicide is an urgent public health issue of concern for all physicians. This talk will address the epidemiology of suicide in older people and will discuss factors that increase risk for suicide among older adults as well as strategies for suicide prevention.

Dr. Lehmann does not have financial relationships with commercial interests.
