Suicidality and Self Harm in Individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury: Characterization, Assessment and Management

Presentation and Discussion with: Amelia Hicks, Ph.D.Post-Doctoral Fellow Brain Injury Research Center, Department of Rehabilitation and Human Performance Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

In this session, Dr Hicks will discuss death by suicide, suicide attempt, suicidal ideation, and self-harm in individuals with TBI. She will explore prevalence and incidence, measurement tools, and discuss factors (personal, injury, environmental) that have been associated with suicidality and self-harm. This presentation will conclude with a review of interventions trialed to date and future directions for this critically important issue.

Dr Amelia Hicks is a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Brain Injury Research Center of Mount Sinai in NYC. Prior to this, she worked as a Research Fellow for eight years at the Monash-Epworth Rehabilitation Research Center in Melbourne, Australia. Her research focuses on the long-term outcomes after moderate to severe brain injury, with a focus on the cognitive and psychiatric sequelae. She is interested in the biological underpinnings of clinical outcomes and how these may be shaped by an individual’s genetics. Dr Hicks has devoted much of her time to examining the lived experiences of suicidality and self-harm in those with brain injury.
