Eating Disorders & Suicide

Syntero’s Eating Disorders and Suicide training will provide participants with a review of eating disorder etiology and definitions, information on different eating disorder diagnoses, and the neurobiology associated with eating disorders. Participants will learn to utilize different questionnaires and screeners to assess the presence and severity of an eating disorder, and will understand the link between eating disorders and increased risk for suicide.

This training is approved for one CEU through the CSWMFT Board for counselors and social workers and will be facilitated by Syntero Delaware City & Buckeye Valley School Services Coordinator Shelbey Mitchell, LISW-S, MSW.

Cost: $20 for community members; free for Syntero staff and interns

Dublin Suicide Prevention Town Hall

While suicide is a difficult public health crisis to talk about, it affects people across all cultures, populations and age groups. This Sept. 15, the City of Dublin and Dublin Police are partnering with local mental health providers, including Syntero, to offer residents a space to discuss suicide prevention as an important community conversation in Dublin. The town hall will feature presentations about debunking common myths, how to talk to someone considering suicide, and ways to support yourself or others in your life with mental health resources.
