Submitted by Karsen Davis

The Safe Zone program, in the Department of Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs, invites anyone who has completed a Safe Zone Introductory Training in the past three years to participate in the Safe Zone Advance Training on understanding signs of anxiety and depression.

The training will be 1-2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, in 113 Leadership Studies Building. Please reserve your place now.

For this training, Safe Zone has paired up with partners in Counseling Services to offer advanced training for faculty, staff, student and community members who wish to learn more about understanding presenting signs of anxiety and depression.

Safe Zone continues to be part of Kansas State University's efforts to create an open and affirming campus since the 1970s. Safe Zone was created to help those facing sexual orientation discrimination. Revitalization of the initiative in 2002 created a more comprehensive and ever-evolving Safe Zone effort to fit the needs of current K-State community members. Allies become educated to help those coming from a variety of backgrounds and identities with needs concerning exclusionary acts like intimidation, micro and macro aggressions, discrimination, LGBTQ related concerns or sexual violence.
