Type of resource: Video
Abstract: Peer support specialists have the potential to improve protective factors for suicide, including instillation of hope and belonging. PREVAIL is a 12-week peer specialist-delivered intervention designed to support individuals during and after a psychiatric hospitalization related to a suicidal crisis. Dr. Pfeiffer will discuss the development and pilot study of the PREVAIL intervention and intermediate findings from a nearly completed randomized controlled effectiveness trial.
