CONVERSATIONS CAN CHANGE LIVES
Have you ever been worried about a student or friend on campus?
Faculty, staff, and students are in an ideal position to recognize when someone is struggling emotionally and may need help. At-risk for students and at-risk for faculty and staff are online simulations that let you practice conversations so you will know what to say in real life.
Why take it?
You can learn how to identify when someone you care about may be exhibiting signs of psychological distress and learn how to connect them to resources. This program is available to faculty, staff, and students to help create a safer and more supportive campus
Students, Faculty, and Staff can create an account using their MSU email address
