The Student Health and Wellness Center (SHAW) and the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Mental Health (CACMH) are excited to announce an updated suicide prevention training for UWM faculty and staff coming in Fall 2023. The new two-part hybrid training structure provides a more flexible and sustainable suicide prevention training model intended to increase access to such essential training for faculty and staff.

  • Part 1 is UW-System’s Recognize, Respond, Refer: Suicide Prevention Training for Faculty and Staff, a 45-60 minute, asynchronous online training that builds awareness, knowledge, and skills about mental health and suicide prevention. 
  • Part 2 is a 50-minute in-person discussion session that builds on the foundational online training to focus on skill-based practice, supporting higher risk groups, and campus-specific resource and referral information.

Details on how to access the new training will be available by mid-September.
