Stand For Izzy:

Best Practice for Intersectionality of Race, Neurodiversity, and Bullying in Suicide Prevention

In November 2021, a 10-year-old African-American girl with a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder who experienced bullying on a systemic level succumbed to injury from a suicide attempt. This tragic loss highlights a drastic need in the community for all who could be considered mental/behavioral health specialists, to join forces with community partners to provide best practices for mental wellness and suicide prevention in culturally and clinically diverse populations. Led by Dr. Kimberly Applewhite as discussant/facilitator, UCEBT providers will contribute according to their expertise.

Presented by: Kimberly Applewhite, PsyD, School/Clinical Child Psychology. Kimberly is program coordinator of the Dialectical Behavioral Therapy program at UCEBT.

Registration for this event will soon be available here.
