Campus Connect Suicide Prevention Training
The Campus Connect Suicide Prevention Training is an interactive, experientially-based workshop designed to improve participants’ suicide intervention skills, so as to develop a network of individuals at UWM who are prepared to assist in identifying and supporting students in crisis. Participants will:
- become familiar with basic statistics and facts regarding college student suicide
- understand the warning signs that someone may be considering suicide
- know how to ask someone if they are thinking about suicide
- know how to refer someone who is thinking about suicide to the appropriate mental health professionals
Campus Connect Suicide Prevention BOOSTER Training
The Campus Connect Suicide Prevention BOOSTER Training is an interactive “refresher” training on crisis response and suicide prevention. Designed in response to the continuing education needs identified by individuals who have previously participated in Campus Connect, attendees will:
- be reminded of strategies for initiating supportive conversations and asking someone if they are thinking about suicide
- understand the importance of maintaining appropriate boundaries in your role as a gatekeeper and acquire strategies for establishing such boundaries while helping a student in distress
- review strategies for encouraging individuals to pursue referrals to appropriate mental health professionals
- feel better prepared to respond to a student in crisis through the use of real-life vignettes
