In the Forefront works to prevent suicide

Friday, November 13, 2015

Have you or your family been touched by suicide?

In our state, suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people ages 10 to 24, and 78 percent of firearm deaths are suicides.

But there is great reason for hope. Forefront: Innovations in Suicide Prevention is a nonprofit based at the University of Washington that has done remarkable things in its three-year history. Due to its efforts, our state is the first in the U.S. to require suicide prevention training for doctors, nurses, teachers and mental health professionals.

Everyone is welcome to attend Forefront’s annual event happening Wednesday, November 18 in the Grand Ballroom in the Husky Union Building (HUB) at the UW,  4001 E Stevens Way NE, Seattle, WA 98195. Parking is free for registered attendees.

The event begins at 6:30pm with an appetizer buffet and will include live music and several presentations. Tracy Taylor of KING5-TV will emcee. There is no cost, but registration is required and guests will be encouraged to make a meaningful gift to advance Forefront’s suicide prevention mission.
