Call for grant applications

SUNY’s Innovative Instruction Technology Grants (IITG) program provides funding to encourage individuals and teams to extend beyond departmental and campus boundaries to pilot, share and “scale up” innovations that have potential to transform and impact teaching and learning practices.

On-campus suicide prevention training scheduled for April

The Counseling Center is planning to bring a suicide prevention training to campus on Sunday, April 8, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

safeTALK is a three-hour training that prepares anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. Suicide-alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety.

The training will take place at Hunt Union. It is free, but pre-registration is required. Space is limited to 40 participants. Please respond by April 5 by registering here. 

Questions can be directed to Laura Marx, AFSP, or 518-791-1544


As a safeTALK-trained suicide-alert helper, you will be better able to:

-Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss, or avoid suicide

-Identify people who have thoughts of suicide

Apply the TALK steps – Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe – to connect a person with thoughts of suicide to suicide first aid intervention caregivers
