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.
  • Thanks for all your efforts! Senate Bill 6431 passed and has been signed into law. Funding for the programs that save lives can continue.
  • Save the Date! Youth Suicide Prevention Program's annual fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, September 10th.

Please join us on Wednesday, April 30th, at Cinerama for the Seattle Premiere of the award winning film "Nothing Against Life." Tickets are $15. All profits from the event will benefit Youth Suicide Prevention Program. You can purchase tickets here.


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.


Help us Save a Life.
