Bystander intervention and suicide prevention training

UNCG offers employees two sessions of its BRAVE bystander intervention program and I CARE suicide awareness and prevention program the week of August 11, 2014.

The program BRAVE – Building Responsible Advocates for Violence Education – has the goal of promoting healthy relationships for UNCG students through an education and advocacy training program. The program will build a network of allies throughout campus. The BRAVE program will focus on all forms of interpersonal violence including, abusive dating relationships (physically/sexually abusive and psychologically abusive), sexual assault (particularly among acquaintances), stalking and harassment.

The program I CARE is an interactive suicide prevention gatekeeper training that addresses the following: mental health and suicide on college campuses; how to identify, connect with, ask about, refer, and encourage help-seeking of students having thoughts of suicide; and mental health stigma.
