Training opportunitiesfor students, faculty and staff
The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education’s (OSRHE) Campus Safety and Security Task Force and the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (ODMHSAS) are partnering to extend access for Oklahoma higher education campuses to suicide prevention online training modules for faculty, staff and students. These online course modules are designed to help campus personnel and students recognize warning signs of psychological distress, build skills to encourage help-seeking behaviors, and offer others a warm referral to suicide prevention support services.
Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid is a course that teaches you how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders. This training gives you the skills you need to reach out and provide initial help and support to someone who may be developing a mental health or substance use problem or experiencing a crisis. The course can be delivered in-person or virtually. For more information, or to arrange a course for your department/group, please contact Dr. Kari Pratt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Question. Persuade. Refer.
Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Please join your colleagues who have completed this training and help prevent suicide.
