Dr. Gabrielle Carlson, MD, President of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP), hosted our ASAP Center Co-Director, Dr. Joan Asarnow, PhD, on the AACAP Screenside Chats video podcast Episode 32 – “Protecting Our Kids: Keeping our Suicidal Youth Safe With a Mental Health Seatbelt”. Drs. Carlson and Asarnow discuss youth at risk for suicidal behaviors and an evidence-based intervention with effectiveness in emergency room (ER) settings. Dr. Asarnow describes our ASAP Center intervention, SAFETY-A, for youths with suicidal presentations in the ER. She emphasizes the importance of safety planning, lethal means counseling, follow-up contact, and linkage to evidence-based care following an ER visit for self-harm and suicide.
