About Suicide Prevention 360

Suicide Prevention 360 is a sweeping effort in partnership with Psych Congress and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), to develop and deliver critical educational resources for mental health clinicians and other medical professionals aimed at preventing suicides.

The Suicide Prevention 360 initiative delivers practical tools, training, and resources for professionals, both in person and online. Since its conception, suicide prevention educational sessions have been rolled out at every Psych Congress program since 2019 with even more slated for 2022. AFSP experts, Dr. Jill Harkavy-Friedman, Dr. Doreen Marshall, and Dr. Christine Moutier, have been among the presenters of this critical content.

Partners in Suicide Prevention



Now in its 35th year, Psych Congress serves as a unique, integrated forum to connect members of the entire mental health team—bringing together psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, psychologists, primary care physicians, and other mental health professionals for four days of practical education to improve patient care.

Psych Congress is the largest independent mental health conference in the U.S. and the premier educational outlet for practical psychopharmacology to better tailor treatment strategies.


Established in 1987, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is a voluntary health organization that gives those affected by suicide a nationwide community empowered by research, education and advocacy to take action against this leading cause of death.
