LivingWorks is the world's leading developer of suicide prevention training programs. Our LivingWorks Start program is a 90-minute online training that teaches people to recognize when someone is having throughts of suicide and connect them to help. Parents can use these skills to keep their children safe, while teens can use them to support peers and friends.
We want to bring these skills to as many people as possible, and that's why we're testing our LivingWorks Start program for 13-year-olds. This will help us confirm that the program works as intended for this age group. If you're a parent or guardian with a 13-year-old, we'd like you to be part of our pilot and help us prepare to bring these life-saving skills to teens everywhere.
To participate, a parent or guardian and their 13-year-old will go through the LivingWorks Start program separately using their computers or mobile devices. Each will complete a short survey after the training, and after that, they'll complete a questionnaire together. This anonymous data will help us validate our program for this age group.
LivingWorks Start is a positive, hopeful experience that teaches us that we can all play a role in preventing suicide. It engages with the subject matter in a thoughtful, compassionate way that is suitable for teen learners.
Benefits of participating:
—Both of you will learn skills that could help save a life
—Help validate a life-saving training program for others
—Upon completion, receive a $50 US gift card as thanks
