Keeping IC Safe

09/04/2012

Contributed by LeBron Rankins

One of the ways we can all work together to keep IC safe is being able to recognize someone in emotional distress, respond in a helpful manner and refer that person to someone able to help.  With this being National Suicide Prevention Week, a Pathways training has been scheduled and is open to all members of the campus community.

Pathways is a crisis intervention and suicide prevention training provided to the campus community by Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).  You are invited to participate in an hour-long training Thursday, September 6, 2012, at 6pm in Textor 101.  Advanced registration is not required.

About Pathways, one student said: "I was a little uncomfortable at first but [the trainer] made it more comfortable for me. By the end, I was glad that I came because now I know how to help a friend in need."

So, spend an hour learning how to help a friend before a crisis arises.

I'll see you Thursday!
