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.

Sign up for Gatekeeper Training today by visiting the University Events calendar and searching “Gatekeeper Training” for the following dates:

  • Feb. 3, 2 p.m.
  • March 3, 9 a.m.
  • April 7, 2 p.m.
  • May 4, 9 a.m.

The training is specific to the Metropolitan State University of Denver community and was designed collaboratively by the Counseling Center, the Health Center at Auraria and the CARE Team. The two-hour sessions are open to all faculty and staff members who routinely encounter students as part of their work responsibilities, and advance registration is required. Attendance is specifically encouraged for those with little to no mental-health, crisis or early-intervention training, but all personnel are welcome.

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