Our Donors

We cannot express enough our gratitude for each and every person who has shown us support for the work being done here at Forefront: Innovations in Suicide Prevention. Your contributions have helped us direct our passion and efforts towards the cause of preventing the tragedy of suicide in Washington state. 

With your support, we have been able to:

  • Create and implement policies that safeguard and prepare campuses and schools to ensure a greater safety net for students and ensure health professionals have suicide prevention competencies;
  • Provide suicide prevention training to thousands of health professionals to be better equipped to respond to the needs of their clients and to save lives; 
  • Offer grief support services to newly bereaved suicide loss survivors and ongoing support in their grief journey
  • Continually shape the conversation to destigmatize mental health and suicide; and to lead the way in spreading the message of hope and that suicide is preventable

Thank you for taking a stand and showing that suicide prevention is a cause worth getting behind.

With Gratitude,

The Forefront Team​
