Be a helper: Volunteers of America Care Crisis Response Services offers group training sessions called safeTALK: Suicide Alertness for Everyone. For more information, contact office coordinator Lynn Birks,, or call 425-212-3993 ext. 2311.

The safeTALK training prepares anyone older than 15 to identify those with thoughts of suicide and how to connect them to first-aid resources. As a safeTALK-trained suicide alert helper, you will be better able to move beyond tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide; identify people who have thoughts of suicide; and connect a person with suicidal thoughts to intervention caregivers.

The Comprehensive Plan is a 20-year plan that guides the city. It includes a land-use map that determines zoning. Any decisions to amend the plan are usually made in December of each year.
