Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken," after reading ..
I'm coming to realize that each individual, given a chance to live a full life, actually becomes an escapee from an age they do not understand. I'm sure it was so with my mother and father who were born at the turn of the 20th Century. They coped, of course, big-eyed and wonder-filled, with flying machines and the loud, obnoxious horseless carriages that hogged the road and frightened otherwise gentle horses plumb spitless.

[and the clincher]: "The appropriation of $2,500 for the purpose of extending the external commerce of the United States, while understood and considered by the executive as giving the legislative sanction, would cover the undertaking from notice, and prevent the obstructions which interested individuals [Napoleon? King George?] might otherwise previously prepare in its way."

Despite advances in mental health screening and treatment, suicide remains a problem on U.S. college campuses. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in youth ages 15-24 and the suicide rate is 15% higher in Washington State compared to the national average. Husky Health and Hope (HHH) is a suicide prevention initiative at the University of Washington (UW) with broad goals for creating a cohesive suicide prevention program on campus. One HHH component is gatekeeper training, a method to help faculty and staff learn to identify individuals at high risk for suicide and refer them for help. I will help assess the effectiveness of three different types of gatekeeper training. Study participants will be recruited from interested UW departments. Individuals will be randomly assigned to one of three training options: online training type I, online training type II, and in-person training; all will complete 12-question pre- and post-tests to evaluate their knowledge, skills, and abilities regarding suicide prevention. I chose three questions from this survey to analyze further because they assess the participant’s intention and confidence towards taking action (or not) when they become aware of a student in mental health crisis. I will analyze differences between pre-test and post-test responses and compare data by other identifiers such as role at UW and years of service. The results of this study will help determine which type of gatekeeper training is most effective for UW employees in a variety of roles. While the scope of my student research will not allow for more long-term data analysis, in the future, study participants will complete another post-test at three or six months to assess retention of training material. This will address one of the knowledge gaps in gatekeeper training, long-term retention of suicide prevention knowledge and skills.
