National Suicidology Training Center and EMPACT-Suicide Prevention Center

The National Suicidology Training Center was established by the Baton Rouge Crisis Intervention center’s Board of Directors as an effort to more directly influence communities to reduce the impact of suicide by training local experts through collaborations with nationally-recognized topic expert organizations. These include: the American Association of Suicidology (AAS), LSU School of Social Work (LSU-SSW) and Tragedy Assistance Programs for Survivors (TAPS) who support military families following Traumatic loss. Each collaboration will bring notables from their field; NSTC will provide a learning environment that delivers high access to the faculty through limited enrollments. This will produce deeper examination of topics that reduce suicide’s impact. 

EMPACT-Suicide Prevention Center (EMPACT-SPC), a 501 (c) )(3) organization and member agency of La Frontera Arizona, is a community-based, non-profit, behavioral health organization who has been dedicated to providing specialized programs and services (suicide prevention and postvention, outpatient, and crisis) to youth, families, and adults facing challenging behavioral and emotional situations since 1987. Another focus area of EMPACT-SPC is providing trainings to the community. EMPACT-SPC staff have conducted trainings and workshops at various national and international conferences for the American Association of Suicidology, the International Association for Suicide Prevention, and the European Symposium on Suicide and Suicidal Behavior.
