Suicide is a primary cause of death among college students. One in ten college students reported having seriously considered suicide within the last year. The goal of the TCU R U OK? suicide awareness campaign is to help students on the issues related to suicide, and one way to do this is by educating faculty.
In this workshop offered in partnership with TCU’s R U OK? campaign, faculty will learn how to recognize the warning signs of suicide in the classroom. Faculty will complete the QPR (Question-Persuade-Refer) Suicide Prevention Program, which is a nationally recognized suicide prevention program designed to educate faculty about suicide prevention and the resources available for those needing professional services. The workshop and training will provide guidelines on how to Question a student about potential suicidal thoughts, Persuade them to seek help, and Refer them to available campus resources.
