Caring Contacts Online Training

Caring Contacts is a simple but powerful suicide prevention intervention that radically changes the relationship between clinicians and clients.


Instead of waiting for clients to reach out in distress, a clinician or other caring individual sends 8 or more messages of care, support and connection to a suicidal individual over the course of a year or longer. Reaching out out to clients repeatedly over time leads to moments of connection and provides opportunities to offer help when it is needed.
