Recognize, Respond and Refer Suicide Prevention

You do not have to be a mental health professional to help someone in your life who may be struggling. Most people experiencing suicidal thoughts will show outward signs of distress, and recognizing these common warning signs could help identify a person in need. Responding to someone in crisis can be intimidating but it is important; taking action is always the best choice. Knowing campus and community resources for referring someone in need can help you feel more prepared.

Attend this session to practice simple skills and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues, contributing to an environment where people are safe, included, and connected to one another.
