Description

Alaska has one of the highest rates for brain injury and suicide in the country. Recent research shows that people with a history of having TBIs have a higher risk of suicide, 3-4 times that of the typical population. This class will look at the prevalence rates for both TBI and suicide in AK, and how we can be aware of the risk factors for both. Then we will review screening tools for both TBI and suicide.



Anyone in Seward or the Kenai Peninsula is welcome
