Plan to Join the Conversation on Suicide Prevention on Wednesday

APA is observing National Suicide Prevention Week from September 8 to 14 and World Suicide Prevention Day on Wednesday, September 10. From noon to 1 p.m. EDT on World Suicide Prevention Day, APA will be holding a Twitter chat on suicide and suicide prevention, hosted by Gabriela Cora, M.D. The Twitter chat is one of a weekly series that APA sponsors to provide an opportunity for psychiatrists to lead conversations on current mental health issues and be involved with patients, the public at large, key influencers, and members of allied groups.

To follow or participate in the chat, follow @APAPsychiatric or use the hashtag #yourMH. If you have not yet joined Twitter, set up your account today at

Please note: APA’s Twitter chats are usually scheduled on Fridays at noon. This week’s chat was moved to Wednesday in observance of World Suicide Prevention Day.
