HMP Global has partnered with multiple organizations working to prevent suicide, including two that provide educational support at in-person and virtual events for clinicians.

We partner with AFSP on our Suicide Prevention 360 educational initiative, offering sessions on suicide prevention that are presented at all Psych Congress events. Similarly, we work with DBSA to co-develop sessions on mood disorders that are presented at Psych Congress national meetings. In support of veterans and suicide prevention, we also partner with Stop Soldier Suicide, a national organization that seeks out at-risk veterans and provides the support and resources needed to prevent suicide.

Our offices are in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and we also seek out local volunteer and partnership opportunities. These include holiday gift drives, volunteering at animal shelters, and partnerships with local schools through school supply drives. Although many of our staff work from home throughout the country, we enjoy partnering with local organizations where we are headquartered.
