Building Suicide Awareness and Fostering Enhanced Resilience (B-SAFER) at Northern Illinois University (NIU). NIU will cultivate connections between mental health providers on- and off-campus; providing training for the community; and promoting the reduction of stigma, an increase in help-seeking and enhanced resilience. This project aims to address the needs of all community members, but specifically targets international students, LGBTQ, students of color, students with disabilities, veterans, first-generation, low-income, and students with histories of mental illness. Project goals are: 1) Enhance relationships with community partners both on- and off-campus through mental health task force and other professional development activities. 2) Implement gatekeeper training (Question-Persuade-Refer) for faculty, staff, and student leaders to prepare them to identify at-risk students and respond appropriately. 3) Develop activities and educational seminars focused on reducing stigma, increasing resilience, and enhancing social connectedness, as well as identifying students at-risk. 4) Create physical and virtual resources to increase help seeking behavior, enhance resiliency strategies, and promote the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline for students, staff, faculty, and families. 5) Develop inclusive practices to respond to the needs of NIU's diverse community by increasing awareness of the experiences of high risk groups. Six to eight NIU community members will be trained to provide Question-Persuade-Refer (QPR) training to the campus community each year. Every faculty and staff member at NIU will receive multiple opportunities to participate in QPR training and the B-SAFER team plans to train 70% of NIU's departments across the grant period, as well as at least 500 students each year. In tandem with the in-person QPR training, an online, interactive module, Kognito, will be incorporated into the offerings to reach off-campus members of the NIU community.
