What is C.A.L.M.?

While counseling services are key to helping support our students with mental health needs, our campus community plays a critical role in overall student wellness. Because of the increasing prevalence of mental health struggles, student success is being increasingly affected. The purpose of C.A.L.M. in Crisis is to build skills across our campus community (students, faculty, and staff). The training focuses on improving awareness of the risk factors and warning signs for suicide, how to recognize and respond when they occur, when/how to refer to available resources, ways in which to offer hope, and the importance of managing personal wellness throughout the process. Participation in the training is how we can help align our various roles on campus to bring evidence-based interventions to our ongoing support of student wellbeing. 

Important Note: This is a two-part training requiring completion of an online component, Training Camp, as well as an in-person component. Training Camp needs to be completed in NorthwestOnline within two weeks of the in-person training date you select. Information to access Training Camp will be sent via email 2 weeks prior to the in-person training. 

The course is organized around the acronym C.A.L.M.
C– Create Awareness  
A – Ask Question 
L – Learn Resources 
M – Manage Your Wellness 

Content includes a brief overview of mental health concerns on campus, as well as breaking down each component of the C.A.L.M. acronym. After completion of both training components, attendees will be emailed a certificate of completion.
