Research Café – Mental Health: Creating A Life Worth Living: Suicide Prevention & Neurodiversity
September 6 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
In the US, suicide claims three times more lives than homicide. Join Dr. Morganne Reid as she explains the pressing issue of our youth mental health crisis, and how individuals with autism face heightened susceptibility. Dr. Reid makes the case for why there is hope, and how research with autistic individuals grappling with suicidal thoughts offers valuable insights that can help shape wider suicide prevention strategies. This talk and Q&A will take place from 6:30 – 7:30 pm at TRU Deli in Chapel Hill on Wednesday, Sept 6th, and is designed for a general audience.
PDA Research Café is a free series, organized by postdocs, to share the exciting research being carried out at UNC with the local community. All talks are delivered by engaging professionals who are leading experts in their fields of research. Talks take place on the first Wednesday of every 2nd month at TRU Deli Sandwich and Wine Bar in Chapel Hill (https://www.trudeli.com). No background knowledge is required – everyone is welcome!
