In the suicide prevention field, the American Association of Suicidology’s annual conference brings together experts, researchers, mental health professionals, crisis services providers, educators, and advocates.
On April 9th in Los Angeles, we are enthusiastic to join these groups as the leading national organization on suicide prevention for LGBTQ young people.
The 47th annual conference provides an ideal place for Trevor to share our innovative work surrounding LGBTQ youth suicide prevention and cultural competency in crisis work, learn about leading best practices to help inform our future work, and build lasting collaborations with like-minded organizations.
This year, we will be presenting three unique workshops about public health, reducing suicide risk factors through advocacy, and Trevor’s new Model Policy on Suicide Prevention. In education, we’ll be partnering with Kognito Interactive to share how virtual education can revolutionize the way teachers, administrators, and youth are trained to prevent a crisis.
As part of the event, on April 9th, Trevor is co-hosting a reception with Los Angeles-based crisis service centers, TEEN LINE and Didi Hirsch, where crisis workers from around the country can network and share ideas. Then on April 11th, we will be hosting a gathering exclusively for conference attendees at the iconic West Hollywood destination, The Abbey, (conference credential required).
We look forward to sharing the results of this upcoming conference with you as we continue working for a future without LGBTQ youth suicide. Thank you for helping The Trevor Project to become a powerful voice in suicide prevention.
The Trevor Project also thanks The Abbey, Absolut, and the West Hollywood Visitors Bureau for their support of our AAS conference reception.
