This handout is supplementary to a four-part webinar series developed for county behavioral health staff, mental health providers, social workers and clinicians to help understand how sociocultural context impacts self-injurious thoughts and behaviors. The series provided an overview of clinical recommendations that are aimed to make suicide prevention more focused and equitable for diverse communities, looks at system level risk factors that impact self-injurious thoughts and behaviors and structural and systemic factors that impact seeking treatment among BIPOC communities and explores clinical implications for effective action around developing and delivering culturally responsive interventions.
