Guyana has the highest rate of suicide per 100,000 population in the entire world. This is an unwelcome distinction for a country with relatively limited psychological professional capacity. Caribbean psychologists are invited to join us in Georgetown for this public symposium that focuses on psychology's readiness to lead a multi-faceted and multicultural response to this public health crisis. 

  • Multi-ecological mental health promotion – intrapersonal, interpersonal, communal, cultural, and societal
  • Multi-ecological risk assessment and reduction interventions and strategies
  • Robust services for attempters
  • Suicide surveillance and registration capacity-building systems

This public Symposium will be the first of several meetings over 3 days, which will culminate in CANPA's annual, in-person Executive Council meeting for 2017 on the 10th of November.
