Rocky Mountain Short Takes on Suicide Prevention: The AAS Conference - Part 3
18 July 2018
In this 3rd of our 4 part series from the 2018 AAS conference we diversify and hear from a Health Behaviorist, a gamer and a future seminarian:
Health Promoting Behaviors as Suicide Prevention with Dr. Daniel 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.

Suicide Prevention and the Greek Life with Marshall Taylor
We got started at the 2018 AAS conference by sitting down with someone we only knew through his Twitter presence, @marshman503, and an intriguing reply to our email request for people to interview as part of podcasts. Marshall Taylor wrote us back and told us about research he had done related to campus Greek Life and Suicide Prevention. That he will be a future seminarian is a bonus!
