Pharmacy professionals can play an important role in preventing suicide, overdoses and suicide attempts – creating safer homes. Washington state-licensed pharmacists are required to take a three-hour training which is approved by the Washington Department of Health.
The training is the result of collaboration among members of the Safer Homes Coalition. Leading partners in development of the training were Forefront Suicide Prevention and the Washington State Pharmacy Association.
