Dr. Walsh participated in this workshop at the National Institutes of Mental Health with thought leaders and researchers in suicide prevention from around the country. The topics covered ranged from:


  • Biostatistical challenges
  • Provider and patient understanding of risk algorithms
  • Ethical considerations
  • Needs for clinical decision tools to guide risk algorithm application
  • Policy-relevant research

It was inspiring and thought provoking conversation. Hope you were able to tune in!
