How you can make a difference

Share your passion for the cause of suicide prevention in the form of volunteer service and financial contribution. There’s a lot of work that needs to be done.

Become a Forefront Cares Mentor

We are looking for mentors to provide short-term telephone support for those newly bereaved by suicide. Forefront Cares provides mentorship training to eligible survivors/volunteers, and works to match mentors with newly bereaved loss survivors based on the type of loss experienced.

Because of the sensitive nature of a mentor’s role, we ask that all mentors be at least two years from the date of their most recent suicide loss.

To request or become a peer mentor, contact Kristen Spexarth

Become a Community Organizer

Forefront Suicide Prevention empowers individuals and communities to take sustainable action to prevent suicide, champion systemic change, and restore hope. Our Community Organizers program is key to fulfilling this mission, equipping individuals whose lives have been touched by suicide to become advocates working to prevent suicide in Washington state.

– Community and state legislative advocacy volunteer work includes working with Forefront and our state legislators to pass suicide prevention policies in Washington State.
–  Safer Homes, Suicide Aware community events and promotion includes representing this campaign at gun shows, distributing educational materials, and more.
–   Forefront Suicide Prevention LEARN trainings are an opportunity to learn and then train community members on how to intervene with someone who may be at risk of suicide.
