About Suicide Prevention 360

Suicide Prevention 360 is a sweeping effort in partnership with Psych Congress and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), to develop and deliver critical educational resources for mental health clinicians and other medical professionals aimed at preventing suicides.

The Suicide Prevention 360 initiative delivers practical tools, training, and resources for professionals, both in person and online. Since its conception, suicide prevention educational sessions have been rolled out at every Psych Congress program throughout 2019 and 2020 with even more slated for 2021. AFSP experts, Dr. Jill Harkavy-Friedman, Dr. Doreen Marshall, and Dr. Christine Moutier, have been among the presenters of this critical content.
