Suicide is among the most pressing public health issues of our time. Scientific American recently called the U.S. suicide rate “nothing short of an epidemic,” with one life lost every 11.7 minutes. Washington’s suicide rate is 11 percent higher than the national average, with almost 1,300 suicide deaths in 2017, twice the number of lives lost to opioid overdose and also to traffic fatalities in the same year. Lawyers are at higher risk for suicide, and often see clients that may be at risk. This 90-minute training has been prepared with the lawyer in mind to help increase awareness of and confidence to help prevent suicide.
