Online Learning

Saving lives begins with you.

We want to equip you with the right tools.

Last year, one in five teens made a suicide plan. It has never been more important to learn about suicide prevention and mental health. Didi Hirsch Academy offers free and reduced cost online training for youth, clinicians, and other professionals.

We’ve been doing this a long time.

For over four decades, we have provided live suicide prevention trainings for students, teachers, school counselors, social workers, therapists, first responders and more. In the face of our youth mental health crisis, Didi Hirsch Academy was built to empower even more caregivers with up-to-date suicide prevention resources.

Online training grounded in direct experience.

We are the nation’s largest and most comprehensive Suicide Prevention Center, supporting over 160,000 help seekers annually. Courses were written by our dedicated crisis counselors and training specialists, providing practical tools for professional and community caregivers.

Continuing Education online, at your own pace.

Select courses meet the qualifications for Continuing Education credit (LMFT, LCSW, LPCC, LEP, Psychologist, and other professionals). Please refer to individual course descriptions on the Academy website for course-specific CE details. Our 6-hour “Suicide Prevention & Intervention” training satisfies the Suicide Assessment, Prevention and Intervention training requirement for California BOP and BBS licensure.
