  • Tuesday, April 16th, 9am-1pm
  • Tuesday, April 30th, 9am-1pm

April is recognized as National Stress Awareness Month to bring attention to the negative impact of stress. Managing stress is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle. Knowing how to manage stress can improve mental and physical well-being as well as minimize exacerbation of health-related issues. Learn these skills and more by partaking in NSHE’s free training for Mental Health First Aid.

Free Suicide Awareness and Prevention Training Course for NSHE

Suicide is complex but often preventable. Check in with a colleague, friend or family member by learning the warning signs of suicide!

The warning signs for suicide withdrawal, depression and hopelessness are there, but not always obvious. It’s up to us to learn to recognize the warning signs and offer support to someone we care about. Register for a FREE LivingWorks Online Start Training Course for Suicide Awareness and Prevention!

To fund and support a mental health training course for suicide awareness and prevention, the NSHE System Administration office received a federal grant to offer a free virtual training opportunity for all faculty, students, and staff at all of the NSHE institutions.  The federally funded course will be accessible through LivingWorks Start online program. LivingWorks Start is a self-paced, online course that trains participants to recognize when someone may be thinking about suicide and how to connect them to help and support.
