The Online Advantage

Pathfinder: one that discovers a way; especially one that explores untraversed regions to mark out a new route. Merriam-Webster

If a mental health condition becomes life-threatening, those thinking about suicide need someone who knows the territory ahead and how to keep them safe. They need someone who is knowledgeable, confident, fearless, and skilled in the use of science-based interventions proven to mitigate psychological pain and suffering.

Seasoned by lived experience, some Pathfinders can provide a unique kind of help to those in pain and help them navigate the unexplored and frightening territory of a mental health emergency they have experienced themselves.

Built upon basic QPR research foundations, Pathfinder training was developed over the past several years to address the global shortage of mental health professionals to cope with the public health problem of suicide.
