Reach Out: Suicide awareness and education

Reach Out aims to increase awareness, provide educational opportunities, and encourage open dialogue about the topic of suicide. Reach Out gives the UCalgary campus community the tools to support students in distress through robust, accessible, evidence-based suicide intervention training programs.


Through Reach Out training programs, the UCalgary campus community can play a vital role in suicide prevention by increasing our ability to recognize and respond to those experiencing thoughts of suicide.
