On demand training

Self-harm in teenagers: The spectrum from nonsuicidal self-injury to suicidality on-demand training features Dr. Marshall Korenblum, an expert speaker and psychiatrist at Garry Hurvitz Centre for Community Mental Health at SickKids.

As cited by *research from The Hospital for Sick Children, there has been a sharp increase in emergency department visits for attempted suicide and suicide ideation among children and adolescents during COVID-19. While there was a 32 per cent reduction in pediatric ED visits for any health-related reasons during the pandemic, there was an alarming 22 per cent increase in the number of children and adolescents going to EDs for suicide attempts and an eight per cent increase in visits for suicide ideation.


This on-demand training is a recording of our hybrid training that took place on July 7, 2023. There are two recordings available:

  • Non-suicidal, self-harm in teenagers: The role of emotion regulation in understanding and treating this urgent problem
    This training will define a DSM-V syndrome called Nonsuicidal Self-Injury Disorder. The epidemiology and prevalence will be described, along with an explanation of the underlying root causes of self-harm.
  • Suicide in teenagers: Signs, symptoms and risk factors
    This training will elucidate a clear understanding of how to recognize the signs of suicide in teenagers and what to do about it.
