The Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide, Inc. (SPTS) is committed to reducing the number of youth suicides and attempted suicides by encouraging public awareness through educational training programs. Mesilla Valley Hospital is honored to partner with SPTS, and is pleased to offer the SPTS training programs and materials to the community at no charge.

SPTS, together with suicide prevention expert Maureen Underwood, LCSW developed several Best Practices resources for both teachers and parents. Making Educators Partners in Youth Suicide Prevention is a free online interactive two-hour suicide prevention training.  Mesilla Valley Hospital has staff members available to train educators, youth workers, and parents using this evidenced-based program.
