Spring into Well-Being (SIWB) celebrates the Mason community’s commitment to well-being by highlighting awareness and educational programs and events hosted by units, departments, and student organizations across the University. Together they help support Mason’s strategic goal of becoming a well-being university.

Mason Cares Training (for faculty/staff)
April 20 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Each year, approximately 1,100 college students die by suicide in the US. Research shows that peers talk to peers when in crisis. To support members of the Mason community in helping students access assistance, Counseling and Psychological Services at Mason offers Mason CARES (Campus Awareness, Referral and Education for Suicide Prevention), a two-hour “gatekeeper” training. This program informs participants of the warning signs of suicide and coaches them in how to talk about suicide with and respond to students in crisis as well as how to guide them toward obtaining professional assistance.
