Forefront is a place where expertise and partnership come together with a passion to save lives.
Mission: Forefront advances innovative approaches to suicide prevention through policy change, professional training, campus- and school-based interventions, media outreach, and support for persons affected by suicide.
Goal: To reduce the suicide rate in Washington State by twenty percent by 2020. Once successful, Forefront will broaden its outreach to other states where the rates of suicide in the U.S. are the highest.
Values: Everybody has a role to play in suicide prevention. Through education, program evaluation and system-level changes, we can increase timely and appropriate responses that can prevent many suicides.
Forefront knows that most suicides are preventable and that the time to act is now.
