This best practice based training, which had only been available in person, is now also online. With the online training, individuals who need suicide prevention training certification can easily complete the training anywhere. Go to Texassuicideprevention.org/training to access the training. Watch for the updated videos and new statistics to be added by the end of the summer.
Texas offers a number of our videos, online and in-person training options related to suicide prevention, including “ASK” training program, Kognito’s “ At Risk” training, “Mental Health First Aide,” ”Counseling on Access to Lethal Means,” and others. In addition, there are a number of Best Practice designated training options nationally. Texas also has Videos of Help & Hope With Youth and Military/Veterans telling their stories of getting help for themselves or others in short “Ted Talk” style videos with a small group discussion guide.
