About the Event
Join ANA\C and ANA\C member, Charles A Griffis Ph.D. CRNA as they discuss the heavy topic of suicide in nursing. In the United States today, nurses and nursing students are more prone to depression due to burnout and overall lack of support in mental health due to stigma.
In return, this has a strong impact on either committing or thinking about committing suicide. By attending this webinar, you will be able to understand the impacts that suicide makes on your family, friends, healthcare institution, and community. You will gain the tools and resources to help your friends and colleagues become one less person to commit suicide today.

2. Explore the potential causes of suicide amongst nurse and student nurses using a social-ecological model.
