Pediatric Suicide and Cyberbullying

Presented by

Charles V. Panadero, M.D.

Dr. Panadero came to the Northern California area from Chicago, Illinois, in July 2002 to enter the Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship at the University of California, Davis School of Medicine. Prior to this fellowship, he graduated from Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine in 1997, and then completed the Triple Board Residency, a program which combined training in Pediatrics, General Psychiatry, and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, at Indiana University School of Medicine/Riley Hospital for Children in June 2002.

After a short stint as Child Psychiatrist at UC Davis, he joined the staff at Heritage Oaks Hospital in 2005, initially as the Adolescent Unit Director, then as Associate Medical Director, in charge of the Intensive Outpatient program. Earlier this year, he left the hospital to open a solo private practice in Roseville (www.cvpanaderomd.com). Outside of the clinical setting, Dr. Panadero volunteers his services at My Sister's House and Bayanihan Clinic, and is president of the Philippine National Day Association (PNDA).

Description of the workshop:

In 2014, suicide became the second leading cause of death among teenagers, second only to accidents. From 2007 to 2014, the number of suicides among our youth increased by almost 2 1/2 times. It is more important than ever to try to develop an understanding of the factors related to this trend. First, we will review the most recent data on teen suicide and examine these factors. The second part of our discussion will review the new phenomena of cyberbullying, which has allowed the tormenting of people, especially, but not limited to, our youth, in innovative and far-ranging ways. The ubiquity of electronic technology and devices has changed our social landscape forever, and while it has allowed for increased communication and connectivity like never before, it has predictably led to more sinister uses, sometimes leading to misery, increased mental health concerns, and suicide. We will review the latest on cyberbullying and some of the local and national efforts to combat it.
