Why get trained to recognize suicide signs? Faculty and TAs are more likely to interact with a student in emotional distress or experiencing a suicidal crisis than a student in cardiac arrest or choking. Yet approximately 80% of college students who die by suicide were never seen in the college counseling center. Attending this workshop will help you to: enhance your awareness, knowledge, and skills concerning college student suicide prevention; learn the signs to identify students at risk; improve your skills and gain confidence in your ability to intervene; stay informed about mental health resources on campus. Join the USC community in helping to identify those at risk and get them connected with services, and to create an atmosphere of caring and responsiveness.
