Business Cards

NowMattersNow.org was developed, in part, because Dr. Whiteside did not have the resources for people hospitalized for suicide attempts and behaviors. She wished she had a business card, like this, to hand out. This card is yours to print, use and share any way you like. We’d love to hear from you if you use it – let us know on our Facebook page or on Twitter.

More About Us

Ursula Whiteside

Dr. Ursula Whiteside (@ursulawhiteside) is CEO of NowMattersNow.org, a licensed clinical psychologist and Clinical Faculty at the University of Washington. She has been awarded research grants from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Dr. Whiteside is co-principal investigator on a study involving 18,000 high-risk suicidal patients in 3 major health systems. This study includes a guided version NowMattersNow.org, a program which includes skills for managing suicidal thoughts based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and paired with Lived Experience stories. Clinically she began her training with Dr. Marsha LInehan in 1999 and later served as a DBT-adherent research therapist on a NIMH-funded clinical trial led by Dr. Linehan. Now she treats high-risk suicidal clients in her small private practice in Seattle using DBT and caring contacts. Dr. Whiteside is faculty for Zero Suicide, is a founding board member of United Survivors, and a member of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Standards, Trainings and Practices Subcommittee. As a person with lived experience, she strives to decrease the gap between “us and them” and to ensure that the voices of those who have been there are included in all relevant conversations: nothing about us without us.
