Campus Connect is an evidence-based suicide prevention gatekeeper training for college and university students, faculty, and staff. The experientially-based training is designed to enhance participants' knowledge, awareness, and skills concerning college student suicide, and intervening with students experiencing mental health emergencies.
Campus Connect is highly interactive and includes multiple exercises throughout the training to increase participants' skills and awareness concerning the emotional intensity of responding to suicidal college students. The training culminates with a role play, in which gatekeepers are given the opportunity to practice the skills they are taught during the course of the training.
After the training, participants will have:
- Increased knowledge of suicide warning signs and referral points for students at risk for suicide.
- Increased skills to respond to college students at-risk for suicide.
- Increased self-efficacy regarding their ability to respond to a student at-risk for suicide.
