Looking to support our mission?
SPIF is actively working to destigmatize mental health and create a community-based platform for organizations and individuals involved or interested in suicide prevention, spreading awareness, pomoting self-care, research, advocacy and training.
Here is how YOU can help us in our mission:
Sign up to become a Gatekeeper
Gatekeeper training is a WHO recommended suicide prevention strategy to help those who are emotionally distressed or potentially suicidal. Trained Gatekeepers learn to recognize signs of suicide, provide emotional support, persuade to get help, and refer those with suicidality to mental health support services.
Work with Us
If you are a student, we offer a variety of options to intern. We are looking for interns interested in research, writing, social media, curriculum development, sales, marketing, and design. All internships, as of now, are virtual. We prefer self-motivated interns and provide assignments that are usually complete projects on their own. The minimum period is for one month.
We are constantly on the lookout for volunteers in any age group, who are looking to make a difference and are passionate about mental health and suicide prevention. There’s no need for prior experience, knowledge, or training in mental health or suicide prevention.
We welcome volunteers interested in fundraising, research, writing, social media, curriculum development, sales, marketing, and design. All volunteering opportunities, as of now, are virtual.
Partnering with the QPR institute, a world leader in sucicide prevention, SPIF is providing a QPR instructor course. It is a 12-hour online certification course that trains instructors to teach QPR to individuals, schools, colleges, corporations and effectively promote suicide prevention in their own communities. Note that becoming a gatekeeper is a prerequisite to becoming a QPR instructor.
