What is it?

NEOMED Cares

Dr. Russell Spieth
Department of Psychiatry

The NEOMED Cares training reviews mental health trends that are impacting our NEOMED community and provides empirically supported strategies to support people in distress.  Participants will appreciate how to recognize red flags for suicide risk.  Learners will also gain strategies to support people in a mental health crisis and how to refer them to the appropriate local resource. 

ALICE

Officer Terri Moncoveish
Department of Public Safety

ALICE, which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate, empowers people to make survival decisions should an attack occur.

Stop the Bleed

NEOMED students
Association of Women Surgeons

Stop the Bleed is a nationwide initiative that was created in response to tragedies such as the active shooter disaster at Sandy Hook Elementary. The idea is that no matter how quickly EMS responds, bystanders are always first on the scene. Similar to teaching the public how to perform CPR, we hope to teach bleeding control techniques, including how to use hands, dressings, and tourniquets. These skills are useful in any bleeding emergency and include techniques to stop bleeding on yourself.

How do I sign up?

Please RSVP to Officer Moncoveish at tmoncoveish@neomed.edu. Seats are limited.
