The Epidemic Of Suicidality Among Young Adults

The Epidemic Of Suicidality Among Young Adults
Taylor Donathan
The presentation focuses on the societal issue of suicidality among young adults and how the COVID-19 pandemic has a significant impact on this societal issue. This presentation explores this social problem by examining a literature study, a conceptualization of the social problem, and how the social problem is seen in a practice context. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss some of the primary contributors to the social problem at hand, as well as the increased prevalence of substance use disorders observed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and how these two concepts are related.

This presentation examines the 8754: Impact Young Adults policy and how it offers resources to substance use clinics and first responders throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This presentation’s emphasis on the significance of educating the community about potential risk factors, warning signals, chances for awareness and education, and the need for resources will aid in bringing about the necessary change. A substantial proportion of young adults are engaged in a “quiet war” with suicidality and other mental health difficulties and are unsure about what to do next.

This presentation addresses this topic to raise awareness and encourage that one young adult to seek attention or assistance. One young adult lost to suicide is one young adult lost to many.
