on behalf of Washington State Pharmacy Association

Dr. Jennifer Stuber, Ph.D. is co-founder and faculty director of Forefront Suicide Prevention, a center based at the University of Washington. She also teachers at the University of Washington’s School of Social Work as an associate professor. Her teaching and research priorities are in mental health and prevention policy, building community capacity in suicide prevention, and responsible and proactive news media coverage of mental health and suicide.

After losing her husband to suicide in 2011, Dr. Stuber turned her sorrow into public service by helping to pass the Matt Adler Suicide Assessment, Treatment and Management Act of 2012. The Matt Adler Act required suicide prevention training for all behavioral health providers in Washington state. Ensuing legislation has added similar requirements for other health care providers, making Washington a national leader in the field of suicide prevention.

Dr. Stuber earned her doctorate at Yale University. She joined the University of Washington in 2006.

Dr. Singer graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Pharmacy from Oregon State University in 1997. She went on to complete a pharmacy practice residency (PGY-1) at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Washington and a psychiatric pharmacy specialty residency (PGY-2) also in Spokane. This experience led her to begin her psychiatric pharmacy career by becoming the sole clinical pharmacist at Eastern State Hospital for over 9 years. She initiated a pharmacy student training program while establishing her clinical practice at the hospital and as a Clinical Assistant Professor for Washington State University College of Pharmacy. Brandy expanded her psychiatric pharmacy horizons by working at 1st Avenue Pharmacy, an independent specialty, psychiatric community pharmacy. For almost a decade, she was involved in providing innovative pharmacy services for the mental health community including administering long-acting antipsychotic injections, using point-of-care laboratory testing for clozapine monitoring, and getting to know her customers. She recently came full-circle and returned to Eastern State Hospital to continue to help customers as they become patients on their road to recovery

Jenny Arnold is the Director of Practice Development for the Washington State Pharmacy Association. She received her PharmD from the University of Washington School of Pharmacy in 2006, and completed her Pharmacy Practice Residency the next year at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, WA. Dr. Arnold is a Clinical Assistant Professor with the University of Washington School of Pharmacy. As the Director of Practice Development, she has helped pharmacists to meet the needs of their practices and community through continuing education, development of collaborative drug therapy agreements, and building links between patients, communities and pharmacists.

Mrs Susan Lippincott (23 Jan 2018)
This course was very easy to follow, and very well organized, with good slides
Mr Richard Ytreeide (20 Jan 2018)
Good information. Very timely information concerning customers I serve.
Mr James Crouch RPh (20 Jan 2018)
I wish I had been able to take this awareness training years ago. It was extremely valuable and I am greatfull to now have the knowledge. Thank you
Dr Brian Henley PharmD (18 Jan 2018)
The day I started this course it became immediately more topical with the death by suicide of Washington State University quarterback Tyler Hilinski. I lost a close friend who ended his own life after his first year of college. Like Tyler, he was a high achiever with a bright future and no one saw it coming. As a WSU alumnus and someone who lost a close friend to suicide I am glad of this training. While I don't necessarily think this knowledge could have helped me prevent my friend's death it helps to give me perspective on it. I am confident that the training will be of use in my daily practice of pharmacy as a clinical pharmacist in a community health center with a behavioral health program. Thank you.
Dr Karen Hansen (17 Jan 2018)
Good information, but the sound editing was horrible. It was difficult to hear at times and then the next slide would be very loud.
Ms Kim Donnelly (15 Jan 2018)
Informative presentation. Videos were powerful.
Ms MARIE CERMAK RPh (14 Jan 2018)
Lots of useful information. The sound varied from ok to inaudible, depending on presenter.
Mrs Mona Dunn (14 Jan 2018)
very informative
Dr Vickie Landkammer (13 Jan 2018)
way longer than it needed to be
Karen deLacy (13 Jan 2018)
I felt this course could have been done in a more concise, shorter format
Mr John Smasal (11 Jan 2018)
Good information but the production was rough. Squealing, buzzing, volume levels varying and some typos seen.
David Stanley (10 Jan 2018)
A real eye opener. Thanks for providing this course.
Steven Larson (9 Jan 2018)
I was pleasantly surprised with this courses. I really appreciated the LEARN acronym and practical tips given throughout.
Ms Phyllis Hunt (8 Jan 2018)
I also had some problems with the sound quality.At times it was quite soft
Sally Logan (7 Jan 2018)
I think that all pharmacists, not just those licensed in Washington, should take this training.
Ms Mandy Liu (7 Jan 2018)
The course reminds me of the importance of humanity and intervention. Thank you for your persistence and advocacy on suicide prevention. I appreciate all the efforts put in to make the requirement possible fro WA.
Dr Ji Young Kim RPh (6 Jan 2018)
I wish they used a better recording system.
Mrs Robyn Agnew (6 Jan 2018)
very informative
Howard Crabtree (6 Jan 2018)
This should be a one-hour voluntary course.
Julie Parrott (5 Jan 2018)
Information could have been conveyed in a much shorter time. Was very distracting when moderator(s) kept saying Aaaa... and especially AHMMMM. In one sentence alone I counted 5 times. Would suggest verbal info be read from a script rather than just what came to the mind in a rambling manner
Dr Kelsey Rasmussen (2 Jan 2018)
Really enjoyed the final role play scenario and the empathetic vs. sympathy cartoon.
Susan Petty (1 Jan 2018)
This train could have been accomplished in about an hour. Not a three hour training, where the same material was repeated over and over again.
Suzanne Lee (1 Jan 2018)
Very insightful
Mr Kenneth Antles RPh (31 Dec 2017)
This was very eye-opening. It makes me think back to times in my career where I should have responded differently had I had this exposure.
Dr Katie Ball (30 Dec 2017)
Thank you! Very informative.
Mr Minh Huynh (27 Dec 2017)
To be honest, I was really dreading going through this training at first, but haven't completed it now I felt like this is an important training that every pharmacist should go through at least one in her/his life. This training really provided me with a much better understanding not only of the prevalence of suicide in America, but how to carry out the appropriate steps in recognizing and preventing it from ever happening. Thank so much for all of your effort in putting this training together, it has been a great learning experience!
Dr Jessica Hilton PharmD (23 Dec 2017)
This was a great course! Very informative.
Mrs Karen Johnsen (20 Dec 2017)
Poor sound quality at times.
Mr Bruno Perri RPh, FASCP, BCGP (5 Sep 2017)
Thank you, this course was very good. Sometimes the audio track was a little rough and loud.
