Northern Arizona University’s Counseling Services is hosting a Campus Connects-Safe Jacks training program. This two-hour long training aims to better equip campus personnel with the tools to identify and support distressed students.

Safe Jacks hopes to educate individuals outside of Counseling Services, such as resident assistants and peer mentors, on how to better help students experiencing difficulties, including thoughts of suicide. The interactive training includes real-life scenarios and exercises for participants to practice their skills.

Safe Jacks training is free to NAU staff, students and faculty. Interested individuals can attend training sessions on either Feb. 1 from 2-4 p.m. in School of Communications, room 118 or on Feb. 2 from 1-3 p.m. in SBS Raul Castro, room 111. For more information or to register for a session, contact Ramona.Doerry@nau.edu.
