MindWise on Campus®
Mental health concerns often first appear between the ages of 18 and 25, making college campuses an ideal place to educate students about suicide prevention.
MindWise on Campus is an online training that uses video and interactive learning to teach college students how to ACT (Acknowledge, Care, Tell) if they are worried about themselves or a friend.
Key learnings include:
- how to recognize signs of suicide risk
- how to encourage someone to seek help
- ways to build strong peer connections
- fostering positive mental well-being
- an overview of available mental health resources
How The Course Works
An annual MindWise on Campus license includes access to our online course for students, extra practice activities, an Admin Toolkit, and an optional Group Facilitation Guide for your counseling center staff, student leaders, or resident advisors who want to facilitate the training in group settings or classrooms.
To reach as many students as possible with these valuable skills, we recommend your school consider mandating and/or incentivizing this 30-minute, self-guided course as part of new student orientation, participation in campus activities (sports, clubs, Greek Life), or student employment.
"Although suicide is preventable, it’s the second most common cause of death among college students.
MindWise on Campus will give young adults the knowledge and confidence to recognize signs of suicide and ACT accordingly."Meghan Diamon, LCSW MindWise Program Director, Suicide Education
