Supporting Veterans, LGBTQ students, and Students in Distress
These free, online interactive trainings are designed to help college faculty, staff, and students recognize the warning signs of emotional distress and PTSD in students that can lead to self-harm and/or harm to others.
The trainings will provide learners ways to approach at-risk students, veteran students, and/or LGBTQ students for referral to the appropriate mental health, administrative and/or student services.
Each training takes about 30-60 minutes and engages learners in conversations with emotionally responsive student avatars that exhibit signs of psychological distress.
Important tips and information on helping someone that may be considering suicide.
These trainings are made available to all California community colleges through the CCC Student Mental Health Program, a partnership between the Chancellor’s Office and the Foundation for California Community Colleges funded through a grant from the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA). CalMHSA is an organization of county governments working to improve mental health outcomes for individuals, families and communities. CalMHSA administers programs funded by the voter approved Mental Health Services Act (Prop. 63) on a statewide, regional and local basis.
