Websites for Self-Help and Trainings

Knowing where to go for self-help, training, or tips, is something we believe is extremely important. Listed below, are a few resources to get you started that we really like and think will be most helpful for you. You can also reach out to any of our counselors in the office too, if you you would like to look further into any of these resources.

  • The website called “Seize the Awkward
    • If you click on the name, it should bring you straight to the link. The intention of the website is to learn about how to have those awkward conversations about mental health. It’s not easy or fun, but we do it, because we care about others and this will help teach you how to do so.
  • The website for the QPR Institute
    • If you click on the name, it should bring you straight to the link. This site is for training of QPR Gatekeepers. QPR stands for “question”, “persuade”, “answer”. It allows you to become a gatekeeper of suicide prevention. The school access code is: MTU
  • Our website is full of great resources, as well.
    • Here we have tabs pertaining to different resources you may be looking for, such as “Mental Health Resources” or “Well-Being”
