Training and Guidance

Creating a culture of care is a concerted effort. We offer several trainings to help students, faculty and staff recognize the signs of mental health and support those in need.

  • Suicide Prevention Training: QPR

    "Question, Persuade, Refer," is a nationally recognized suicide prevention program designed to educate participants to recognize and respond to the signs of suicidal thinking or behavior.

  • Mental Health First Aid Training

    Mental Health First Aid is a free, 8-hour course that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental illnesses, builds an understanding of their impact, and overviews common supports. Groups can request training.

  • "You Can Help a Coog"

    Together, we can help to identify someone in need and serve as a protective safety net.
