Gatekeepers Suicide Prevention Training

As part of a comprehensive suicide prevention initiative titled "UW Lifesavers Initiative," the University Counseling Center (UCC) provides Gatekeepers Training to students, staff, community members and faculty that will help identify students at risk of suicide attempts and suicide.

We know that most people who are severely depressed or suicidal will not automatically seek out a professional counselor.  Gatekeepers Training is offered to the key people, who interact daily with students, and will be able to provide a bridge to professional help. This two hour program focuses on symptoms of depression and suicide and participants receive hands-on practice on how to intervene with a student, friend or colleague who might be suicidal.

Objective: The objective of the Gatekeeper Suicide Prevention and Depression Awareness Training is to decrease the stigma that surround issues related to mental health and increase help-seeking behaviors

Goals:

  • Learn the signs and symptoms of depression and suicide
  • Learn how to listen and approach someone who might be depressed or suicidal
  • Learn how to get the person of concern connected with help
  • Promote help-seeking behavior
  • Reduce the stigma of seeking care for mental and behavioral health problems
