Suicide Prevention Training Opportunities for Undergraduate Students

You can help cultivate a community of care by checking in with your peers and having open conversations about mental health. Friends, roommates, and partners are often the first people students go to when they are struggling or seeking support. 

UW-Madison offers resources for you to learn how you can better support your peers and help connect them to resources. 

78% of UW-Madison students would talk to a peer if they were struggling with their mental health.
