Scientific News and Reading Suggestions #13

Some of our Section Members have created several educational Flyers on suicide prevention in high risk population, including recommendations and orientations about suicide related topics; one of them concerns LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual and Q, questioning) population. The Flyers Project is still ongoing and we hope this could help the average clinician with practical highlights.  

A recent letter published on JAMA, “Suicide Risk Behaviors Among Sexual Minority Adolescents in the United States, 2015” by Theodore L. Caputi and coworkers reports about suicide risk in sexual minority adolescents using nationally representative data from 2015.

On 19th December Jen Christensen of the CNN mentioned this letter in the article: “LGBQ teens face serious suicide risk, research finds”.
