Last year, Dartmouth trained 441 faculty and staff in skills-based trainings to support student mental health and well-being. Training covered subjects such as recognizing students in distress, connecting them with resources, and suicide prevention.
Our skills-based trainings are offered for groups of students, staff, and faculty who want to support student mental health.
Creating a Culture of Care – A 1.5 hour training program developed by the Dartmouth Counseling Center for students, faculty, or staff who want to support mental health and wellbeing of students, recognize or reach out to a student who is struggling, and connect students to appropriate resources.
Campus Connect – A 3-hour training developed by the Dartmouth Counseling Center for students, faculty, or staff who want to increase knowledge of suicide warning signs, learn and enhance response skills, and foster self-efficacy when responding to students in crisis and referring them to appropriate campus resources
Mental Health First Aid – A full-day training for faculty, staff, and some student audiences who want to build their skills recognizing and responding to students experiencing several types of mental health challenges at three levels: early signs and symptoms, escalating signs and symptoms, and crisis (including suicide risk). Contact JED Campus Manager and certified Mental Health First Aid trainer Katie Lenhoff for more information about this training and how to access it.
Campus Connect Booster – A 2-hour training developed by the Dartmouth Counseling Center for students, faculty, or staff who have completed the Campus Connect training within the last two years and want to refresh their skills with additional discussion and practice.
