2020 Suicide Prevention Summit

Dear Mental Health Professional,

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, and one of the world’s most pressing health challenges. As a mental health professional, you are the frontline of defence, and you will be required to work with suicidality.

We have partnered with the American Mental Health Counselors Association and the American Association of Suicidology to bring you the 2020 Suicide Prevention Summit.

The purpose of this Summit is to equip practicing mental health professionals with the most up-to-date, advanced knowledge and treatment options on suicide prevention.

To achieve that, we’ve assembled 11 highly respected experts on suicide into one online specialized Summit.

Over 2 days, August 29 & 30, you’ll have free access to all Summit sessions, live online (via webinar). You will then have on-demand streaming access for an additional three weeks, from August 31 to September 20.

One of the most powerful resources we have to reduce suicide is our frontline mental health workforce. We believe that by providing mental health practitioners with global best-practice knowhow and skills, we can tangibly reduce suicide rates in the United States.

We see our role as bringing global best-practice education to practitioners – for free. Your role is taking the time to learn and apply.

As we endeavor to save valuable lives, we look forward to seeing you at the online 2020 Suicide Prevention Summit.

Date and Time: 
August 29, 2020 - 6:00am to August 30, 2020 - 3:00pm
