Suicide Prevention

UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy


A grant-funded initiative by Professor Delesha Carpenter, PharmD, this project sought to teach pharmacists—as frequent-interaction, first-line health-care professionals—how to recognise troubling signs of suicidal ideation and intention and how to have a conversation with patients to guide them to resources, such as the Crisis Line (800-273-8255), to de-escalate a situation.

This was an NIH grant-funded project.

Shot during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the actors were shot one at a time and composited together in 2-shots in post.
