SOS for Higher Ed: Suicide Prevention for Faculty & Staff is an online, self-guided training designed to prepare university faculty and staff to respond to signs of distress in students.

Using the ACT (Acknowledge, Care, Tell) framework, the course shares campus staff who have real experience supporting students at risk for suicide. It also offers hands-on scenarios to practice how to:

  • Recognize signs of suicide in a student
  • Engage in conversations with students in need
  • Keep a student staff, while connecting them to resources
  • Help students build connections on campus
  • Feel prepared and confident to support students

Developed by the creators of SOS Signs of Suicide, an evidence-based youth suicide prevention program trusted by thousands of schools across the country, our Higher Ed trainings carry SOS from middle and high schools onto campuses at a time when mental health concerns often first appear – making college and university campuses an ideal place to educate and reinforce suicide prevention practices for everyone.


  • Audience: All college and university faculty, staff, administrators, coaches, etc.
  • Length: 30 minutes
  • CEs: Not available

This course is available on its own or bundled with our Student course as a suicide prevention package for your campus.
