Cyclone Support Training is for Faculty/Staff or student leaders at ISU to learn skills in helping identify potential wellbeing issues affecting students and connecting students to resources for support. This training is intended to meet the public health goal of reducing harm and negative consequences from various wellbeing issues that students experience while in college.
The training covers three components of an evidence-based public health strategy:
- Screening – quickly assesses the severity of issue(s) and identifies the appropriate options for referral.
- Brief Check In – focuses on increasing insight and awareness regarding issue and motivation toward behavioral change or utilization of resources.
- Referral to Resources – provides those identified as needing assistance with connections to resources.
The training helps staff learn how to embed these skills into their work to support students.
Training is interactive with role model and role play exercises.
