Mental Health Depression & Suicide New

Depression is a mood disorder that causes persistent feelings of sadness and loss of interest.  It affects how a person thinks/behaves and leads to a variety of emotional and physical problems. Suicide and suicidal thoughts can be the result of psychiatric illnesses or occur after a major life event like death of a loved one or loss of a job. According to World Health Organization (WHO) 350 million people suffer from depression and  more than 34,000 commit suicide every year. Instructors will investigate common co-morbidities associated with depression/suicide, identify a developmental pathway for depression/suicide and facilitate student demonstrations of condition-specific learned knowledge. Participants will have the opportunity to differentiate warning signs of depression/suicide, manage scenarios with depressed/suicidal patients and compare therapeutic and nontherapeutic interventions for patients with depression/suicidal thoughts.  This will help health care providers improve therapeutic patient communication while promoting safety. Course approved by Nevada State Board of Nursing for CNE.
