This session will couple two campus resources which function as part of a comprehensive campus-wide suicide prevention plan that prepares community members to notice signs of distress and know what to say and do in response whether that person is a colleague or a student. An integral component of this early intervention and suicide prevention training, is exploring not only the warning signs of declining mental/emotional health but also, campus support resources and the undercurrents of human interaction around mental health situations. We will discuss why and how our perceived barriers can make it so difficult to intervene when someone is struggling. Participants in this session will complete CSU Health Network’s Notice and Respond Assisting Students in Distress training program, which includes information about various campus resources, and will discover the “what’s next” in regards to the behind the scenes processes that the TELL SOMEONE Program utilizes to help provide support to students and employees of concern, specific to their unique needs.
Goals and Target Audience:
For any Faculty, Staff, Support, State Classified, Admin-Pro, Student Affairs Professionals to learn more about recognizing signs of student/employee distress and how the Tell Someone Program can intervene
