UW Faculty/Staff Suicide Prevention Training

As a UW-Seattle employee you may come in contact with students, colleagues, friends or family members in distress. Nationally, nearly 10% of all university students are struggling with thoughts of suicide and at a campus our size there may be 600 suicide attempts per year. UW-Seattle has had 18 suicide deaths in the last 6 years. When you see someone in distress you might be wondering how serious it is and if suicide is possible. You might be wondering how to help them -- or even how to help yourself.

Forefront: Innovations in Suicide Prevention (www.intheforefront.org), a center based out of the University of Washington's School of Social Work is proud to provide an engaging, hopeful, practical, skill-based 90 minute training to faculty and staff of UW’s Seattle campus. The training is offered at no-cost as part of Husky Help & Hope (H3) suicide prevention initiative.

This training will help us identify individuals, particularly students, who might be having thoughts of suicide and help us know how and where we can refer those individuals to keep them safe.
