Keeping IC Safe


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!
