Caltech Connect training provides practical information about how to approach someone experiencing distress, concrete strategies for intervention, approaches to suicide prevention, and information about referring to appropriate resources. This training will enable participants to differentiate between helpful and unhelpful language and strategies, provide Caltech-specific data on mental health, and explore ways to participate in the Caltech Community of CARE.
This training will be held via Zoom, and in our experience it's important that participants have their cameras on if at all possible. Having a visible, active, and engaged group is key to being able to talk about this material effectively. Do what you need to do, of course, but please have your camera on if you can.
