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.
