Injury Prevention / Preventing Suicide and Depression

In the elderly, personal losses and medical conditions can lead to depression, feelings of hopelessness and suicide. This program teaches viewers to spot signs of depression and suicide and gives them techniques for primary prevention, such as pet therapy, social activities and volunteerism, that can help ward off debilitating depression. Included are discussions of assisted suicide, myths about suicide, treatment programs and types of depression, and screening instruments to use to spot signs of danger.

This tape is part of a ten tape series listed in this catalog as Injury Prevention for the Elderly, The Series.
