REACH© Suicide Prevention
Anyone can help prevent suicide by learning the risks, warning signs, and how to intervene. REACH© is the name of the UNO suicide prevention gatekeeper training program designed to help the UNO community prevent suicide by teaching faculty, staff, and students how to:
Recognize warning signs
Engage with empathy
Ask directly about suicide
Help suicidal individuals access care and resources
Suicide prevention gatekeeper trainings are intended to provide general information to help reduce suicide risk through a training program specifically designed for individuals who are not trained and who are not licensed mental health professionals. The REACH© Training* aims to help increase knowledge and awareness of suicide risk and inform attendees on college and community resources.
*A REACH© Training is not a clinical mental health training. It does not teach suicide assessment or intervention strategies, nor is it a comprehensive training on suicide risk.
Who Can be REACH© Trained?
UNO offers REACH© Training to students, faculty, and staff.
How long is a REACH© Training?
REACH© Trainings are 90 minutes in length. Please note that we are unable to offer condensed versions of the REACH© Training due to content complexity and sensitivity. Participants must arrive 15-minutes early to sign-in.
