The mission of Connor’s Climb Foundation is to provide suicide prevention education by raising awareness, reducing stigma, and equipping youth, educators, and the community at large with tools and resources focused on the vulnerable
age group of 10-24 year-olds, to New Hampshire and bordering communities.
Connor’s Climb Foundation’s certified suicide prevention educators will train school staff, community leaders and other trusted adults on the best practices for suicide prevention and, where applicable, on implementing the evidence-based SOS Signs of Suicide program.
SOS Implementer Training &
Training Trusted Adults
The Training Trusted Adults seminars focus on how to recognize and react to the various signs of suicide. The training educates staff on how to successfully communicate these signs to their mental health staff and become "Trusted Adults" to the youth they serve.
Trusted Adult Suicide Prevention Training for Families and the Community
Connor’s Climb offers two trainings for families and community members that teach adults how to recognize and react to possible warning signs of suicide. Both of our community trainings can be tailored for various audiences, including parents and caregivers, coaches, health professionals, and military personnel.
Beyond the Basics Suicide Prevention Training for School Staff
Connor’s Climb offers a variety of “beyond the basics” workshops for school staff on various topics related to suicide prevention. Issues include School Connectedness, LGBTQ+ Suicide Prevention, Bullying and Suicide Prevention, and Suicide Prevention for Elementary School Staff.

NH Law 193-J
Suicide Prevention Education is the Law!
Since 2014, Connor’s Climb Foundation has urged lawmakers to pass legislation requiring schools to provide suicide prevention education to staff and students. In 2019, all the years of hard work paid off! With the passing of Senate Bill 282 (now RSA 193-J) in 2019, schools in NH are now required to provide suicide prevention education to school personnel at all levels and to students in middle and high school on an annual basis.
