The Community Helpers Program is a free certificate training program in supportive listening and suicide prevention for U of A students and staff. The two-day program aims to build a strong and supportive campus community by equipping participants with the tools to help others who are experiencing a mental health problem or concern. The intent of the program is to support “natural helpers” and build a bridge between the informal and formal support systems for young adults in the community and to provide awareness of existing supports and services. In addition to enhancing their skills, participants also increase their knowledge about a variety of issues those they are helping may face and learn about valuable resources both on and off campus.
