Editor's note: Jan. 6, 2022. With the increase nationally in COVID-19 cases, both sessions of this training will now be held virtually. Interested persons can sign up for the session of their choice using the link in the article. 

The University of Delaware's Center for Counseling and Student Development is hosting virtual suicide prevention training for University of Delaware faculty, staff and graduate students on Thursday, Jan. 27, and Friday, Jan. 28.

The Campus Connect Gatekeeper Training is scheduled from 1:30-3:30 p.m., Jan. 27, and from 9:30-11:30 a.m., Jan. 28. The training is available at no cost to all faculty, staff and graduate students; however, advance registration for either program is requested by Friday, Jan. 21.

Throughout these sessions, participants will learn to recognize various signs of student distress and signals of suicidality. Interactive sessions and case scenarios will enable attendees to familiarize themselves with phases of crisis and to build confidence in holding conversations with students about their concerns.
