The collaboration between Appalachian State University and local rental companies continues to expand in important ways as companies that provide off-campus housing to students partner with the University on initiatives aimed at keeping students safe. Landlords are often on the frontlines in their interactions with student tenants who are dealing with stress, depression, or substance use. To learn more about how to respond to these situations, a number of rental companies have participated in an in-depth suicide prevention training provided by Elisabeth Cavallaro, Coordinator of the Survive and Thrive program on campus. The Survive and Thrive training provides tangible tools for navigating a variety of challenging situations, as well as identifying helpful resources. The following rental companies have participated in the training: University Highlands, Sofield Properties, Carefree Property Company, Village of Meadowview, Studio West, and the Cottages of Boone. We commend these companies for their involvement in caring for the health and well-being of ASU students and look forward to providing training to additional members of the landlord community in 2015.
