Kansas State University has partnered with The Bandana Project to continue a national campaign to spread suicide prevention and mental health awareness.

Due to increased demand for these trainings, the THRIVE Navigators are hosting five open training sessions this semester and encourage individuals and groups to sign up to attend. Dates and locations for spring 2023 sessions can be found online.

The workshop is tailored to help students learn how to recognize and respond to signs of distress in their peers. Participants will learn about resources on campus and helpful listening skills. They will also have the opportunity to join the movement and receive resource cards and a green bandana to tie onto their backpack as a show of solidarity.

The THRIVE Navigators, a departmental student organization under the leadership of Lafene Health Center, are dedicated to bringing awareness to mental health resources on campus as well as reducing the stigma that surrounds mental health.
