About the Course:

In this research bulletin we address suicide and traumatic stress in the wake of disasters. Because suicide and suicidality relate closely to a range of issues in behavioral health, we saw this focus as a way to understand more about behavioral health responses to disaster in general. Also, we wanted to look at an apparent paradox in the research: although traumatic stress is a risk factor for suicide, and traumatic stress increases in the aftermath of disaster, in many cases suicide rates have not increased after disasters. Finally, by reviewing highlights of research on suicide, suicidality, and traumatic stress linked to disasters, we hoped to find ways to provide more effective support to disaster survivors.

This course is based on the reading-based online article, Supplemental Research Bulletin Issue 5-Traumatic Stress and Suicide After Disasters created by SAMHSA
