Woman holding head, looking stressedAdministrators, faculty and staff are often the first point of contact for students experiencing distress and/or mental-health challenges, so it’s important to properly prepare employees to administer meaningful and successful interventions.

GateKeeper Training is one approach to providing individuals and communities with the knowledge and techniques necessary for identifying, understanding and referring students who may be at risk for mental-health challenges.

The training is designed specifically by and for the Metropolitan State University of Denver community in lieu of an external/unaffiliated training. The program was created via collaboration among the Counseling Center, the Health Center at Auraria and the CARE Team. Given that faculty and staff have different levels of experience and comfort in this area, beginning and advanced GateKeeper Training sessions are available.

Departments are encouraged to arrange GateKeeper Training to ensure that all MSU Denver faculty and staff are prepared to best serve students in need of mental-health services.
