Enhancing Treatment and Utilization for Depression and Emergent Suicidality (ETUDES) in Pediatric Primary Care

Statement of Problem

Suicide is one of the leading causes of death for adolescents. Rates of suicide and suicide attempts among adolescents have risen dramatically in the past decade, particularly among Black and Hispanic youth. Because many adolescents attend annual well-visits, primary care settings are critical for identifying and treating suicidal youth. However, there are challenges to identifying suicide risk and intervening once that risk is identified. 

Description

Next Steps

We are actively preparing to launch the Center studies and activities and will begin participant enrollment in November 2022. Our ultimate goal is to develop implementation-ready tools for primary care providers that can reduce the rate of adolescent suicide and promote health equity.
