Outreach Services

Outreach programming is designed to educate students, faculty, and staff on mental health and wellness topics to foster a vibrant campus community, as well as reduce harmful or unhealthy behaviors within the student population.

We empower students to make informed, positive lifestyle choices; take responsibility for self-care; and achieve optimal levels of wellness in order to reach their full potential. Often in collaboration with other departments, student organizations, faculty, and/or staff, the Wellness & Outreach Services team provides a wide range of workshops, online resources, educational materials, and campus-wide events to foster wellness.

QPR Suicide Prevention Training
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students, but there's a way that you, as a St. Edward’s community member, can be part of the solution - become a QPR Gatekeeper.
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer - 3 steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.  Those who complete this one hour to one hour and fifteen minute training will learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.
