UNO Counseling and Psychological Services is launching a free on-campus suicide prevention intervention training known as University Gatekeeper Program (UGP). This program teaches participants how to assess a person for possible suicidal thoughts or behaviors and how to intervene to get them the help they need both on and off campus.
About the Training Session
The in-person session will take approximately 90 minutes, be offered once a month, and facilitated by two licensed therapists from the CAPS office. Participants will learn extensive background information about suicide causes, incidence/prevalence, impacts, and evidence-based prevention strategies.
UGP will allow participants to practice the intervention strategies they are taught in partnered exercises and with facilitators in a large group simulation.
Multiple dates and times are offered for the suicide prevention trainings throughout the semester for campus community members to attend at their convenience, however, participants only need to attend one training to receive all information and practice the skills presented. Twenty seats are available per session. If a session is full, or you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
