Welcome to the Center for Suicide and Homicide Prevention, and Interruption (CSHPI). An extension of the Center for Incubation & Findings Research (CIFR) and Compassion Center dedicated to reducing violence and self-inflicted harm. Directed by our chief research officer, Drina Fried, Ed.D., CSHPI operates as a public facing extension of the Institute for Suicide and Homicide Prevention (ISHP) dedicated to advancing solutions.
More than 49,000 people commit suicide yearly as of 2022 in the United States alone. More than the deaths that result yearly from automobile accidents. Dr. Fried’s groundbreaking research into this crisis led to the development of her program “Offensiveless Defense” plus two rules to live by. Dr. Fried trains professionals, healthcare providers and parents on how to help students, children, acquaintances, and all others from harmfully acting out or harming themselves.
This is a vital tool for educators, teachers and first responders.
Learn how to recognize the tell-tale signs of suicide and homicide ideation, and how to respond so you can save a life. More than that, Dr. Fried provides useful expert information on how we can parent and reparent ourselves and others to break the harm in between that often leads to depression and violent choices.
Dr. Fried has developed MUST HAVE tools for empowering parents, teachers and guardians:
