Our Value Proposition
We create value by bringing together the best of academic research and real-world practice to improve suicide risk identification, assessment, treatment, management and referral. We develop actionable information that busy professionals need to improve their reputation and effectiveness. And we share this information online, in ways that fit into your daily workflow, at the point where decisions are made that can affect a person at risk for suicide.
When it comes to prevention of suicide, we’re both inspired by and committed to probing, learning, partnering and impacting. We invite you to join us.
Empathos. Empathy. Path. Pathos. Our name combines the words “empathy” and “pathos” to reflect key cornerstones in best-practice treatment of suicidal people.
Empathos also contains the word “path” as well as “e” for electronic and education, thus reflecting both technology and a path or trail to enhanced practice through readily accessible online information.
Our logo conveys what we are about at our core: empowering suicide prevention through education. Connectedness. Wrap-around care. Systems-wide support. Full engagement between provider and person at risk.
A signet. A shield. A hallmark of excellence. Empathos.
Serving our customers is central to our strategy. They span a broad spectrum of practice settings, all with relevance to prevention of suicide: health care, social services, education, legal, public safety, insurance, risk management and public policy.
We support professionals in these practice settings by addressing a broad spectrum of gaps in awareness, attitudes, skills and performance competencies related to what they need to know: recognized standards of care and evolving treatment options for those at risk for suicide. Professions turn to us when they need actionable information—in suicide risk identification, assessment, treatment management or referral—so they can better serve at-risk people.
Our learners act as change agents in their practice settings, and positively impact the systems in which they function, for the benefit of all.
We entered a new era as Empathos in November 2013, formerly known as Well Aware Resources, LLC.
Since then, we have established our position as a respected source of information and online training in suicide prevention. Our initial focus was on at-risk youth populations, primarily in school settings.
This focus has broadened in recent years to include other at-risk populations and other settings. To further pursue our mission and heighten our impact, we’re leveraging our respected content, and relationships with subject-matter experts and learners alike to further advance prevention of suicide.
