Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of the YSPP is to reduce suicide attempts and deaths by the youth of our state. This will be achieved through public education, training, evaluation, and the enhancement of community responses.
We envision a Washington State where youth suicide is a rare event. We nurture and support the well-being of our children and youth. We promote safe and healthy communities. We make individuals and families aware of the risk factors for suicide and make community resources easily accessible.
YSPP promotes cooperation between mental and physical health resources and families. We advocate for the early identification of children's mental health issues and encourage families to view help as something to seek out instead of avoid. We eagerly partner with others and together we work to develop communities, where children are safe, where help is available, and where youth and their families feel good about seeking help.
YSPP provides public education for youth, parents, media, and the general community. We raise awareness about youth suicide through presentations, posters, brochures, public service announcements, Suicide Prevention Week activities, the program's web site, and school-based campaigns.
YSPP also provides gatekeeper training to prepare front-line workers to assess and intervene with at-risk youth. YSPP utilizes the ASIST and safeTALK curricula and maintains a cadre of trainers, across the state, to deliver these workshops.
