Tigers Together Advocacy Training

In honor of World Suicide Prevention Day and Suicide Prevention Month, Tigers Together is offering an all-campus suicide prevention training - faculty, staff, and students are invited to join and learn valuable, life-saving suicide intervention skills.

According to the CDC, about nine young people between 18 - 22 years old die by suicide every day (1). One way this multifaceted public health concern can be combated is by participating in gatekeeper trainings such as Clemson's Tigers Together Advocacy Training (TTAT).

This experiential training enhances advocates' knowledge, awareness, and skills concerning college student suicide. Emphasis is placed on developing empathic listening skills, communication skills and the ability to compassionately and directly ask students about suicidal thoughts.

This was great. The instructors were very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information I needed to help handle a situation if one should occur
