About this event

Course Description:

Many of us have confided in others during dark times, and vice versa. But it can feel awkward, if not downright frightening, not knowing what to do when a loved one or a peer shows suicide warning signs. Developed by Forefront, the five simple and effective Forefront Suicide Prevention LEARN® steps empower individuals to help others move in the direction of hope, recovery, and survival. The Advanced LEARN® for Educational Staff Associates covers additional important topics for school staff, including suicide screening and safety planning intervention, and gives participants an opportunity to practice these important skills with experts in the field. The Advanced LEARN® is listed as a model course by the WA Department of Health.

Detailed Agenda:

  • 00:30: Introduction and public health issue of youth suicide (Covers risk factors, why people die by suicide, and recent data)
  • 00:30 – 2:00: Suicide prevention skills using Forefront’s LEARN model (Includes imminent harm by lethal means, practice using screening tools, and key components of safety planning intervention)
  • 2:00 – 3:00: Prevention approaches practice (Gives participants an opportunity to practice completing a safety planning intervention with their peers)

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the public health issue of youth suicide
  2. LEARN® suicide prevention skills (Including screening and safety planning intervention)
  3. Integrate prevention approaches into your personal and professional life
