Risk and Resiliency: A Discussion About Suicide in Older Adults


Suicide rates have increased in recent years, and older adults are more likely to die by suicide than any other age group. Jane Woods, Chairman of the Suicide Prevention Alliance of Northern Virginia, Carrie Cannon, Prevention Specialist with the Fairfax-Falls Church CSB and Verniecia Bell, a Mental Health Therapist with the Regional Older Adult Facilities Mental Health Support Team, share information on resources that are available to help reverse this trend, and show older adults that there is hope, healing and help in their time of need.
