Forefront -- innovations in suicide prevention
More than 40 people dedicated to the cause of suicide prevention converged in Olympia for Forefront’s first Lobby Day on Feb. 25, 2014. Each had been affected by suicide. Some had attempted to take their own lives. Others had lost family or friends. All came to speak to their legislators about the importance of training and funding for suicide prevention. Their stories made a difference. The Senate unanimously passed ESHB 2315, a Forefront-backed bill making vital improvements to suicide prevention in Washington State, the following week.
