At-Risk for college students
At-Risk is a UHS-sponsored suicide prevention training designed to build skills in communicating effectively with students in distress. The 30-minute online training is free for UW-Madison students.
UHS encourages all students to complete this free training designed to help you:
- Recognize students in distress
- Respond appropriately
- Refer to campus and local resources
In support of Suicide Prevention Awareness month, all UW-Madison students who complete or re-certify the At-Risk during the Fall semester (by December 15, 2017) will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a $20 Amazon gift card.
As of November 2017, over 2500 UW-Madison students have participated in At-Risk.
93% of students who completed At-Risk would recommend it to a friend.
After completing At-Risk, 97% of students said they were confident in their ability to discuss their concerns with a friend exhibiting signs of psychological distress.
“I really like this tool. It is so interactive, almost like playing a game!”
“This is an extremely simple yet useful course and I recommend all students take it.”
“I liked that it was relatable. The situations that the students go through are very common.”
