SMILE works to prevent youth suicide by supporting public health approaches to the early detection and treatment of mental health issues that increase suicide risk.  We also train adults to support youth experiencing any serious personal life crisis. With a focus on building resilience and mastering important life-skills - and where we can, and they are available - we embrace evidence-based, best practices shown to be safe and effective in reducing youth suicide risk, e.g., SOS and QPR. We also educate others in how to increase protective factors for all youth. Research has shown that education is the most powerful tool available to bring about the positive outcomes we all desire, and education will remain our primary mission.  

The 2019 annual SMILE educational conference "Early Prevention, Future Success" co-sponsored by NEWESD 101 was held on Oct. 23rd at the Talbott Event Center:
4202 S. Regal Street, Spokane, WA 99223
