Training

Equipping professionals, families, colleagues, and community members with suicide prevention tools is one of the most effective ways to ensure that suicidal individuals get the help they need. Forefront's experienced trainers deliver bespoke curricula to diverse audiences who many someday save a life. Everyone plays a role - with evidence-based best practices.

Conventionally, suicide prevention has not been taught in schools or considered a part of first aid training or an integral aspect of healthcare providers and education professionals' skillset. But the culture is changing - and the responsibility is upon all of us to know how to intervene.
 
Since 2013, over 8,500 community members and professionals have learned best practices of how to engage with individuals and patients who show warning signs of suicidality. That includes LEARN™, Forefront's own curriculum which can be taught to a variety of audiences.
 
No matter who you are, what you do, or how many CEUs you aim to earn, there is a high-impact suicide prevention training for you.
