Free Suicide Prevention Training

Suicide ranks as one of the top nine leading causes of death in Washington State and the United States. Compared to the general population, male veterinarians are 1.6 times more likely and female veterinarians are 2.4 times more likely to die by suicide. Furthermore, veterinary professionals report higher levels of anxiety, depression, compassion fatigue, and suicidal thoughts.

To address this problem, Forefront Suicide Prevention has collaborated with Laura Moss, MD of the Washington Physicians Health Program and Sonja Olson, DVM of BluePearl Veterinary Partners​ and Heartstorming Wellness to produce a suicide prevention training that will improve the safety and wellbeing of veterinary professionals.

This three-part and three hour course explores suicide prevention strategies to support veterinary medicine professionals. Three self-paced online training modules (total 3 hours) include:

Module I – LEARN Saves Lives: Suicide Prevention for Veterinary Professionals (1 hour)
Module II – The Intersection of Wellness & Suicide Prevention: Supporting the Health of Veterinary
Medicine Professionals (1.5 hours)
