QPR (Questions, Persuade, Refer) is a training program that is available for all groups or individuals on campus who need or want to know more about how to talk to students about this critical life-saving topic. People trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis.  The program teaches how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. This is a two-hour practical training that provides participants with the basic tools and knowledge so they can be effective if they were ever faced with this type of situation.

Campus Connect is a two-hour gatekeeper training program for faculty, staff, and students.  This training uses interaction and activities to enhance knowledge, awareness, and skills regarding suicide among college students.  Participants will learn suicide risk and protective factors, warning signs, empathic listening skills, communication skills, how to ask individuals if they are thinking about suicide, what reactions they may encounter, and what referral sources they can provide.

It is our goal to equip as many UNT staff, faculty, students, and concerned others as possible to help intervene and save our student's lives.


CTS appreciates and values the collaboration between our department and others, and strive to understand the needs of other campus offices so we may best help students who utilize these other offices.  Many of our staff act as liaisons to other offices on campus, and make an effort to tailor programming specifically to these offices and gives support to the offices and students as needed.  This collaboration allows for quickness and ease of programming to occur when the offices and students would benefit.
