COLUMBIA, KY - More than two dozen mental-health professionals from Kentucky attended a conference on Tuesday at Lindsey Wilson College that featured one of the nation's experts on suicide.
David Rudd, dean of the University of Utah College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and scientific director for the university's National Center for Veterans Studies, spoke about his research on suicide to more than 30 mental-health professionals in the LWC Norma and Glen Hodge Center for Discipleship.
The Lindsey Wilson Institute for Advanced Study sponsored the event.
"It was a great event because it exposed our students and members of Kentucky's mental-health profession to one of the nation's leading experts on suicide, especially relating to veterans," said LWC Associate Professor of Human Services & Counseling Jennifer Williamson, who is also director of the Institute for Advanced Study. "Suicide has become a major issue among veterans returning home from the wars, and this conference gave Kentucky mental-health professionals valuable information about this subject."
In addition to his clinical work, Rudd is an active researcher with more than 170 publications. He is currently conducting a $1.97 million clinical trial for suicidal soldiers at Fort Carson, Colo. Rudd has authored several books, and his research has been recognized with both national and international awards. He has served as a consultant to many organizations, including the Air Force, Army, Department of Defense, and the Beijing Suicide Prevention and Research Center. Rudd has testified four times before Congress, both House and Senate, on issues related to veterans and suicide. Duane Bonifer, the writer, is Director of Public Relations at Lindsey Wilson College
