Recovery and Wellness: The Journey Starts Here
A Joint Effort Sponsored by Community Care Behavioral Health Organization

Services for Teens At Risk (STAR-Center) is a program that combines clinical and outreach services designed to combat the problem of adolescent suicide. Our mission is to offer state-of-the art, responsive care for youth and their families with depression, anxiety, or who are at risk for suicidal behavior, to train other professionals in best practices and to make these practices better through continued research. STAR-Center is committed to the integration of education, prevention, treatment, and research in order to offer the best care for our youth.

The STAR Center’s 30th Year Anniversary Research Symposium is designed for mental health and primary care practitioners to provide the most current information offered by the international leaders in the field of youth suicide. The symposium focuses on the causes of youth suicide, the best ways to assess risk, and a review of the latest evidence-based treatment and prevention approaches.

Who Should Attend
This conference is designed to present the latest research and clinical knowledge regarding suicidal behavior on youth to a wide audience. It will be geared towards mental health professionals (psychologists, nurses, psychiatrists, social workers), and primary care physicians.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
• Recognize current biological and psychological mechanisms likely to contribute to suicide risk
• Describe novel approaches to the assessment of suicidal risk
• Discuss advances in treatment and prevention
