Suicide prevention is a shared campus responsibility. Join the REACH© movement! Save a life!
Anyone can help prevent suicide by learning the risks, warning signs, and how to intervene. REACH© is the name of the OSU suicide prevention gatekeeper training program designed to help the OSU community prevent suicide by teaching faculty, staff and students how to:
Recognize warning signs
Engage with empathy
Ask directly about suicide
Help suicidal individuals to access care and treatment
OSUSPP only offers REACH© trainings to university and student affiliated organizations, departments, colleges and programs. The training is best experienced and designed to last the full 90 minutes.

Participants who finish the training receive certificates and pins verifying their completion of the program.
