Suicide prevention is a shared campus responsibility. Join the REACH© movement!
Save a life!
We are excited to announce that OSUSPP is accepting requests for in-person Group REACH Trainings for dates beginning April 1, 2021. Please note that this information is subject to change as the university’s plans for the spring continue to develop. Training spaces, participants, and REACH Trainers will be expected to follow all university safety protocols. For Group Trainings, it is the responsibility of the training requestor to ensure that their space reservation meets the appropriate social distancing and safety guidelines outlined by the university.
Due to the sensitivity and complexity of the REACH Training content, as well as our dedication to following national standards and best practices, REACH Trainings will only be offered as an in-person experience. However, to help our university continue to learn about suicide prevention, OSUSPP is now offering a virtual information session, “Reach Out: An Education & Advocacy Session for Suicide Prevention.” For questions about Reach Out Sessions, visit go.osu.edu/ReachOutSessions
Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @OSUREACH and check our website regularly for the most recent updates. If you have additional questions, please email email@example.com.
Anyone can help prevent suicide by learning the risks, warning signs, and how to intervene. REACH© is the name of the OSU suicide prevention in-person 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 access care and treatment
OSUSPP only offers in-person REACH© Trainings to university and student affiliated organizations, departments, colleges, and programs. Participants who finish the training receive certificates and pins verifying their completion of the program.
