National data suggest that rates of suicide attempts and deaths among children have been increasing in the US over the past decade. However, very little research has been conducted on suicide risk in children relative to adolescents and adults. This workshop is intended to foster discussion among experts in the field with the goal of identifying future research priorities in the area of child suicide risk.

This meeting is free and open to the public. Seating in the meeting room is limited due to room capacity. Remote access will be available via conference call and webcast.

Parking is available at a nominal fee. A government-issued photo identification card (such as an NIH ID or driver's license) is required to enter the building.
