Suicide Prevention in Nursing Webinar Series – Part 4
Presented by Arkansas Nurses Association
In recognition of Suicide Prevention Awareness month, this five-part series will be provided as live, virtual sessions through ZOOM every Thursday during the month of September beginning at 5:00 pm.
It’s a topic few want to talk about, but the sad truth is that nurses died by suicide at twice the rate of the general population. This 5-part series will explore the causes and indications of nurses who take their own lives and look at ways their colleagues can recognize and help support the at-risk before the unspeakable happens. Protecting your own mental wellness with strategies to cope with stress and burnout are highlighted to help us all be more mindful of our state of resilience.
Pre-registration for each part of the series is required.
Part 4: September 23
From Moral Failure to Treatment of Disease
Presenters: Marie Manthey, PhD(h), MNA, FAAN, FRCH and Cadie Ayers, MSN, PHA
Description: During this part of the series, listen to two powerful testimonies from nurses who have had suicide touch their lives, in different ways but both influenced by substance abuse issues and their aftermath. Dr. Manthey and Ms. Ayers are now tireless advocates for supporting nurses with SUD problems instead of just punishing them. They’ll ask some hard questions and challenge the traditional actions of some state boards of nursing that may not be in the best interest of the nurses they serve.
