Health Promoting Behaviors as Suicide Prevention with Dr. Daniel DeBrule

Dan DeBrule

Dr. Daniel DeBrule, Psychologist and Health Behavior Coordinator here at the Houston VAMC, talked with Adam about the role of health promotion in suicide prevention. They explore how overall well-being contributes to mental health, and how a wholistic approach to the individual may engage Veterans and others that do not find traditional care impactful. Dr. DeBrule has been an avid suicidologist for over a decade, and was the Director of the Suicide Prevention Research Laboratory of Indiana University South Bend for 5 years prior to pivoting into health and medical psychology. He continues to be active as a clinician, researcher, and consultant within the VA/Texas Medical Center and in private practice, where he trains MDs, RNs, and others in approaching suicide prevention with interpersonal connection, health promotion, and reduction of maladaptive health behaviors.
