According to Eastfield’s Counseling Services data, students enrolled at EFC are at greater risk for suicide and suicide attempts than most in the state and nation-wide. The Providing Hope, Awareness, and Suicide Education (P.H.A.S.E.) Project will implement activities designed to minimize suicide risks among the high number of students enrolled at Eastfield from vulnerable populations. The P.H.A.S.E. Project is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), which, under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, leads the public health efforts to advance behavioral health of the nation.
As a result, the P.H.A.S.E. Project will:
have shown an increase in college stress over the last few years, but
with increasing competition, an ever expanding number of stressors, a
societal loss of personal communication, and escalating workloads, that
seems like a no-brainer. What do we do when people we are close to start
to bend under pressure? What can we do to help? How do we talk to our
students and peers who are dealing with problems?
In this unique,
game-based simulation, you will learn how to recognize the signs of
distress, approach a student you are worried about, and determine where
to go for help.
