Ask Listen Refer - Online Suicide Prevention Training Program

The Truman State University Suicide Prevention Training Program was designed to help faculty, staff, and students prevent suicide by teaching you to:

• identify people at risk for suicide

• recognize the risk factors, protective factors, and warning signs of suicide

• respond to and get help for people at risk

This program takes about 20 minutes to complete. It is intended to be educational rather than therapeutic, and it must be completed in one sitting. Logging in and out of the program may cancel your progress and prevent you from obtaining your certificate of completion.

Body U

Our online survey is programmed to understand each person’s behaviors and self-image. Based on these results, our program assigns each user to a custom-tailored online or mobile program that fits their unique needs if applicable. Once enrolled, Body U members can access their program via web or mobile app. Programs cover concepts of general fitness, healthy eating habits, coping skills, anxiety- and depression- reduction techniques, and how to more positively evaluate your self-image. With programs tailored to your unique needs, everyone can benefit from Body U.

Calm App


Pranayama was engineered to teach your body how to breathe properly. Babies naturally breathe diaphragmatically, however, adults often take shallow breaths. By training your lungs to breathe at their full capacity, you could experience a whole ton of health benefits.

ULifeline: Your online resource for college mental health


The Self Evaluator was developed for ULifeline by Duke University School of Medicine and screens for 13 of the most common mental health conditions that college students face. This screening does not provide a diagnosis but identifies problems that could be impacting thoughts, feelings and behaviors. The screening process also provides information on these conditions and how to reach out for help.



Stress, anxiety, and depression are caused by an ongoing cycle of negative thoughts. Thoughts cause physical feelings and emotions which cause actions. Sanvello helps break this cycle using tools that target each of its components. Day-by-day, you’ll learn to manage stress, anxiety and depression at your own pace. We’re not about quick-fixes or false promises. We are about real progress, a day at a time.
