Husky Help and Hope-Training Study Invitation

Researchers at the University of Washington are conducting a research study to evaluate and compare three different suicide prevention trainings. If you are interested, we invite you to participate in this study which includes training about how to recognize at-risk students. Participation is voluntary.

The University of Washington is committed to the health and well-being of students and has a number of programs in place to assist students in distress. A recently funded SAMHSA grant, Husky Help and Hope, allows us to increase support for students by training faculty, staff, and administrators in ways to recognize possible risk for suicide and connect students with resources. Dr. Jennifer Stuber is PI on the grant, and Dr. Elaine Walsh researcher leading this evaluation. If you choose to participate, your participation will help us evaluate and compare these three different training options.

Those who are interested in training will be randomly assigned to one of three training options, all of which last approximately 1 hour. Two training options are online and one is in person. Participants will be asked to complete 4 brief surveys as part of the study. Please see the attached Information Statement for details about the training and evaluation.
