The Stephen Sexton Training Institute was established by the generous support of the Stephen Sexton Foundation created in memory of Stephen Sexton, who committed suicide at the age of 27. The Institute sponsors suicide prevention programs and the exchange of information on mental health issues.
The Institute funds seminars on suicide prevention and children at risk, at no cost, to social service workers, teachers, parents, and others in the general community. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available to attendees.
