Mental Health Initiatives

This project was developed to help people recognize or advance their resiliency. Participants will have the opportunity to explore who they are, how they relate to the world, and how they typically deal with the curve balls life throws their way. Participants will have the opportunity to develop and enhance skills to help manage these stressors. Our hope is that participants will begin to develop confidence in their ability to bounce back, fail forward, and weather the storms of life.

The Support Zone Faculty training is a 150-minute comprehensive training that includes suicide prevention, instruction on how to recognize and respond to signs of distress in students. The goal of this training is to engage faculty as mental health allies and help them learn the basic components of suicide prevention, enhance knowledge of campus mental health resources, and rapid assessment and referral of students in distress. Participants will learn how to intervene at the mild, moderate, and severe levels of distress and how to refer students to the appropriate.

Upcoming Dates:
September 3

December 7

Interpersonal Violence

Participants are presented with an array of intervention strategies to utilize in their everyday lives and will engage in a group discussion about overcoming personal and societal barriers to bystander intervention. Information about on and off-campus resources will be provided.

This course provides an in-depth overview of how to support an interpersonal violence survivor from the moment they disclose through whatever process the survivor chooses. The course will cover resources and options offered to survivors and an overview of processes associated with a survivor’s options. Participants will leave with an understanding of how interpersonal violence impacts all types of people and how to most effectively support a survivor.
