Featured Workshops


Safety Planning Intervention Unpacked  (It’s More than Filling out a Form!) 
with Gregory K. Brown, Ph.D. & Kelly L. Green, Ph.D. 
Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania


For years, safety plans have been filled out to assist people at risk for suicide, but not all safety plans are created equal! Developer of the Safety Planning Intervention will be in town to teach us how to ensure safety plans have their maximum impact.  


What if it's that Simple? Non-Demanding Caring Contacts for Suicide Prevention:
with Amanda Kerbrat, MSW, LICSW
Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington, School of Medicine


For decades, research has indicated that the Caring Contacts intervention may be an efficacious, scalable, and low-cost intervention for reducing suicidal behaviors. Learn about this simple approach for reducing suicide risk with a local suicide prevention champion. This training will also address practical considerations for implementation such as the target population, message content, delivery options, and contact modality (e.g., postal mail, email and text messages).


Advanced LEARN® SAVES LIVES for School Mental Health Professionals
with Harry Brown, M.A., LMFT 
Forefront Suicide Prevention in the Schools, Mercer Island Youth and Family Services


There is a lot more we can do to prevent youth suicides from happening. This three-hour suicide prevention training is designed with the school mental health professional in mind teaching practical skills in how to identify, intervene and provide on-going support to youth and young adults who are at-risk. This trainer has carried out hundreds of successful interventions with youth in schools during the course of his 25 year career.



Presented by Forefront Suicide Prevention, a Center of Excellence at the University of Washington, and Northwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center.  This event is made possible with funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Washington State Department of Health.
