On September 17 and 18, 2020, join the NIMH Division of Translational Research for a two-day virtual workshop, “Social Disconnection and Late Life Suicide,” which will bring together clinician scientists, behavioral scientists, neuroscientists, geriatric psychiatrists, epidemiologists, and implementation scientists to discuss the current state of the science on social disconnection and suicide. Workshop topics include:
- the mechanisms by which social disconnection confers risk for suicide in older adulthood,
- potential treatment targets for future intervention development, and
- opportunities for and obstacles to effective implementation of interventions to address and prevent late-life suicide.
