How is Youth SAVE unique?
• Offered virtually, which reduces costs and travel time, and allows participants to learn alongside other professionals from across the state
• Designed for those who don’t need the entry-level information offered in other intervention training programs, significantly reducing training time
• Encourages learners to analyze current suicide intervention policies and procedures in their professional settings
• Provides evidence-based suggestions for relational, equity-focused, and youth-centric policies
I serve youth in-person. Why take Youth SAVE?
While the training is framed for virtual environments, the skills are also applicable for in-person situations. Additionally, some young people may be more comfortable using technology to disclose personal information. For example, one of the Youth SAVE trainers sat at a table with a teen and used text messaging for the entire intervention, because that’s how he felt most at ease.
