ECHO

Project ECHO logo

ECHO is an ongoing program for you to interact with peers from other institutions. Each includes a presentation on campus suicide prevention or wellness promotion and a group discussion of a case study.

What’s the “ECHO” name about? Project ECHO is a global initiative based at UNM that creates a continuous loop of learning, mentoring, and peer support across many topics. Our ECHO focuses on campus suicide prevention. Check out stories from other ECHOs here.

Continuing Education Credits (optional)

You can earn 5 or 6 hours towards CE credit for your participation in our ECHO sessions. In order to receive credit for attending, you must be an active participant in at least four (4) sessions across the semester (e.g., presenting a case, asking questions, making suggestions, and sharing insights with other participants).

You must be present for at least 90% of each session (including the didactic, case presentations, and discussion) to receive credit for that day’s session. Additionally, you must complete a survey/evaluation after each session.

To earn the additional hour of credit (for 6 hours total), you must present either a case for group discussion or volunteer to help present one of the didactics.

Attendance at more than four sessions is highly encouraged; however, we are unable to offer additional hours of CE credit for attending more sessions this semester. Likewise, we cannot grant hours towards CE credits for attending less than the minimum of four sessions (though we encourage you to attend whatever sessions you are able to attend).
