What We Do
Campus Connect Suicide Prevention
What can we do when someone's behavior or statements worry us?
Suicide is a leading cause of death for today's college students and at USF we want to create a safety net for those who may be considering suicide as an option. The USF Counseling Center in partnership with the USF Collaborative Suicide Prevention Project is proud to offer you an opportunity to become a suicide prevention gatekeeper and learn how to save a life today!
What is Campus Connect?
Campus Connect is a gatekeeper training program that will teach you how to:
- Recognize warning signs and risk factors.
- Assess the level of risk for someone in crisis.
- Ask someone if he/she is thinking of suicide.
- Refer someone to the right resources.
Who can sign up for the training?
The training is open to anyone at the USF Tampa campus. This includes students, staff, faculty, organizations, academic and student affairs departments.
The training takes 2 hours and is lead by trainers of the USF Collaborative Suicide Prevention Project. The content includes experiential and interactive activities, and group discussions.
