Gatekeepers Suicide Prevention Training

As part of the "UW Lifesavers Initiative," we provide Gatekeepers Training to community, faculty, staff, and students that will help identify students at risk of suicide attempts and suicide.

DISCLAIMER - The content and discussion in this training course will necessarily engage with suicide risk and mental health crisis and role-plays to ask about suicide and safety.  Much of it will be emotionally and intellectually challenging with which to engage.  The staff of the UCC will do our best to make this a training space where we can engage bravely, empathetically, and thoughtfully with challenging content.

  • Please note, if you feel this training may not be of benefit to you speak with your immediate supervisor about an alternative experience including a list of mental health resources, or a consult with a clinician at the University Counseling Center.

This two-hour program focuses on risk factors, and warning signs of crisis and suicide and provides participants hands-on practice on how to intervene with a student, friend, or colleague who may be in a suicide crisis.

Goals:

  • Learn the drivers, factors, and signs of suicide

  • Learn how to listen and speak with someone who may be in crisis or suicidal

  • Learn how to refer the person to appropriate resources

  • Promote help-seeking behavior

  • Reduce the stigma of seeking care for mental and behavioral health problems
