How to Save A Life Suicide Prevention Training

In honor of World Suicide Prevention Day and Mental Health Awareness Week in October we are providing Suicide Trainings.  It can be hard to notice when people are struggling and yet between 7 and 10% percent of college students each year seriously consider suicide.  At College of Charleston, that number is between 700 and 1000 people every year and we feel that is too many.  You can learn how to recognize when people are struggling and what to do to help.

Join us from 9/11/17 through 10/11/17 and attend a training to help each other.

How To Talk To People About Alcohol and Drug Use

Screening, Brief Intervention & Referral to Treatment (SBIRT)

SBIRT is an evidence-based practice used to identify,
reduce, and prevent problematic use, abuse, and
dependence on alcohol and illicit drugs for non-mental health professionals. It includes an upstream model that
helps to create a conversation about alcohol and
substance use which has been shown to help people
reduce their use to healthier levels.  It has also been
shown to help increase the probability that someone
struggling with addiction will seek more extensive or specialized treatment as needed.

Coming Soon

9:00 am until 5:00 pm 

Free for College of Charleston Students and Staff
Community costs $40.00. 

Training fees will be used for materials and for
Mental Health Initiatives at CofC
