HelpPRO Suicide Prevention Therapist Finder Launches on World Suicide Prevention Day
Date:9/10/2013

Lexington, MA (PRWEB) September 10, 2013

HelpPRO, in partnership with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, the American Association of Suicidology (AAS), the QPR Institute, The Carson J Spencer Foundation (CJSF), and the Suicide Prevention Resource Center, launches the HelpPRO Suicide Prevention Therapist Finder today. Across the globe September 10th is recognized as World Suicide Prevention Day. The Finder, available at http://www.HelpPRO.com/SPTF, gives people struggling with a suicide crisis an opportunity to link to mental health service providers with expertise in suicide risk assessment, management and support.

“In 2004 my brother took his life,” said Sally Spencer-Thomas, CEO of the Carson J Spencer Foundation (CJSF) and Survivor Division Director for the American Association of Suicidology, “I remember the weeks before his death, our family searched in vain for a therapist that fit his unique mental health needs. I wish we had a tool like this then to help guide us. Our mental health system can be very overwhelming, and to families in crisis, this tool offers a sense of assurance.”

The goal is to help save lives by making suicide prevention and bereavement resources more directly accessible and to encourage therapists to update their suicide prevention training. Paul Quinnett, PhD, President and CEO, The QPR Institute, Inc. says "Twenty-two of our veterans will take their own lives today. So will someone's daughter, a brother, a co-worker and far too many working men and grandfathers. The Finder helps practitioners update their skills by connecting them to new training developed in the last five to ten years based on best practices research which saves lives.”
