Meeting Agenda:

12:30-2:00 Suicide awareness and prevention for those living with progressive illnesses and health disabilities (Marc Markell)

Description: Thoughts of suicide for people who have progressive illnesses and health disabilities that will eventually end their lives are exceedingly common. However, relatively few people make a suicide attempt or complete suicide. Suicide rates among individuals with terminal illness are generally thought to be much higher than the general population. This presentation will address suicide prevention for this population and will present ideas for care providers to practice self-care.
Marc Markell is an internationally known author, educator, and speaker for his work in education, learning disabilities, psychology, grief and death. Marc earned his doctorate from the University of Minnesota in Educational Psychology and holds several related professional certifications. He has published numerous articles in the area of his educational specialization which include learning and behavioral difficulties, positive behavior strategies, literacy for students with disabilities, psychology, grief, and death education.
