LivingWorks Start teaches valuable skills to everyone 13 and older and requires no formal training or prior experience in suicide prevention.
When you sign up for LivingWorks Start training, you'll learn a powerful four-step model to keep someone safe from suicide, and you'll have a chance to practice it with impactful simulations.
Safety resources and support are available throughout the program.
Most people are surprised to learn that they’re much more likely to encounter someone who’s thinking about suicide than someone who needs CPR. Yet suicide is preventable: with the right skills, anyone can help save a life. That’s where LivingWorks Start comes in. In as little as one hour online, this interactive training program will give you the skills and knowledge to keep family, friends, co-workers, and others safe from suicide.
"This is so near and dear to my heart. I am so grateful you have a program that can reach teens too."
"I was a little anxious at first, but the training was great. I feel much better prepared to help now."
"Glad for this training. These are must-have skills for people in so many fields. "
LivingWorks Start is one of several LivingWorks training programs. Each of these programs trains someone to play a different role—and people playing these roles together can achieve an even greater impact than they could alone. As a LivingWorks Start trainee, you can connect someone to a LivingWorks ASIST trainee for a full intervention and safety plan. You can also attend other LivingWorks training programs and learn to provide more in-depth help for someone in need.
