Caltech Connect - Suicide Prevention Training

Caltech Connect training is a 2-hour interactive experience designed to give participants practical skills for having supportive conversations and making referrals to resources for those in crisis.  Caltech Connect is highly interactive, as participants engage in multiple exercises throughout the training to increase both their skills and awareness concerning the emotional intensity of responding to suicidal college students. The training culminates with a role play, in which participants are given the opportunity to practice the skills they are taught during the course of the training.

Services available to students

Student Wellness Services are available to all eligible enrolled Caltech students and are NOT dependent on enrollment in any insurance plan. Seeing a clinician is FREE, so please encourage your students to utilize the resources they need.

Health Services

Being seen by a medical provider at the Student Health Services is FREE to all currently enrolled Caltech students. Students should consider Student Health Services as their first stop for all their primary care needs. Students can schedule an appointment through the Student Health Portal or by calling (626) 395-6393.

Counseling Services

Student Counseling Services staff regularly consults with faculty and staff about students of concern. If you'd like to get advice about how to support a student, please call us at (626) 395-8331 and ask for a consultation. Student Counseling Services collaborates with the CARE Team to connect students to appropriate resources; we encourage you to make a referral directly to the Team by sending an email or submitting an online referral.

Occupational Therapy Services

Occupational therapy is a FREE service to all currently enrolled Caltech students. Occupational therapy examines roles, habits, routines, values, and the environment around you, in order to meet students' individualized needs. Occupational therapy focuses on implementing concrete, practical strategies to facilitate success toward desired goals.

We assist students with a range of issues, including:

  • Academics: time management, planning and organization, goal setting, improving focus, productivity, procrastination
  • Physical Health: sleep, self-care, healthy eating, engaging in physical activity
  • Mental Health: managing stress and anxiety, functioning with non-visible disabilities, work-life balance
  • Life Coaching: motivation, decision-making, problem-solving, accountability, exploring values and goals
  • Transitions: adjusting to campus life, post-graduation plans, changes in roles or expectations

Students do not require any additional referral in order to see an occupational therapist. If you feel that a student you are working with may benefit from our services, encourage them to schedule an appointment through the Student Health Portal or by calling (626) 395-8331.
