Close up of hands on a table during a counseling session.Administrators and members of faculty and staff are often the first point of contact for students experiencing distress and/or mental-health challenges, so it’s important to properly prepare employees to administer meaningful and successful interventions. This includes in-person and online interactions.

Roadrunner 3R Training (Recognize, Respond and Refer), formerly Gatekeeper Training, is one approach to providing individuals and communities with the knowledge and techniques necessary for identifying, understanding and referring students who may be at risk for mental-health challenges.

The training is designed specifically by and for the Metropolitan State University of Denver community in lieu of an external/unaffiliated training. The program was created via collaboration among the Counseling Center, the Health Center at Auraria and the CARE Team.

  • The two-hour virtual sessions are open to all faculty and staff members who routinely encounter students as part of their work responsibilities.
  • Attendance is specifically encouraged for those with little to no training in mental health, crisis or early intervention, but all personnel are welcome.
  • Advance registration is required.

Departments are encouraged to arrange Roadrunner 3R Training to ensure that all MSU Denver faculty and staff members are prepared to best help students in need of mental-health services.
