How You Can Help
Community Action Toolkit
Our mission is to reduce youth suicide attempts and deaths in Washington State. Working toward that goal, we build public awareness, offer trainings and school curricula, and support communities taking action. Please support our work to save the lives of young people.
  • Just in: Youth Suicide Prevention Program's "Networks for Life" training is just one of two stand-alone trainings that have been approved for school counselors, nurses, social workers, and psychologists under House Bill 1336.
  • Registration is now open.Youth Suicide Prevention Program's annual benefit is Wednesday, September 10th. Come join us in saving lives!

Each week in Washington State, an average of two young people die by suicide and another 17 suicide attempts result in hospitalization.

While these facts are disturbing, there is hope. By educating ourselves and others, we can make a difference.
