Education and Training

Suicide is a leading cause of death in Washington. State rates of suicide are higher than the national average and are at risk of increasing further as the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated rates of anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation. Medical professionals and client-facing staff are likely to interact with individuals considering suicide, so its critical that they have the knowledge and tools to intervene and help those in a suicidal crisis.

One of our central missions is to share knowledge and best practices around the world and throughout the mental healthcare community. Our goal is to make our trainings, self-guided courses, and research readily available and easy to navigate. In this section, you will find upcoming live events and evergreen training sessions that are available 24/7
