OUR IMPACT

TRAINING PROFESSIONALS

PDV Foundation materials are used in training of doctoral students in psychology - tomorrow's generation of clinicians. Thomas E. Ellis, PsyD, ABPP used our rural-themed issue of Advancing Suicide Prevention® magazine to encourage students to practice in rural and remote areas of America; this suggests broader use of the magazine in building professional capacity in areas of need.

Moreover, School Nurse News, read by 8000 professionals nationwide, responded to our "Schools and Suicide" issue by reprinting our cover story with permission.
Editors had a different topic slated for their September 2006 issue, but were motivated by our content to feature youth suicide and schools instead - and they looked to our editorial staff to provide expert and timely content. Edutopia®, an award-winning magazine for educators published by the George Lucas Educational Foundation, did the same, covering youth suicide in October 2006, again inspired by our publications.
