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
One License, Two Learning Paths
An annual MindWise on Campus license includes access to two learning paths for your college or university. We know every school community is different, so each path may be used separately or reinforced together throughout the school year.
30-Minute, Self-Guided Online Course
This online, self-guided course can be mandated as part of freshman orientation, participation in campus activities (sports, clubs, Greek Life), or student employment. It also contains extra practice activities to reinforce the program’s messaging.
60-Minute, Peer-Led Training
The peer-led version of the course gives Resident Advisors, student leaders, or campus advocates the opportunity to increase mental health support and suicide prevention at your school. You’ll also receive a marketing toolkit with resources and templates to help you encourage student participation and support communication with faculty, students, and community.
"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
