About Intervene

Intervene was developed by Cornell University and is available to educational institutions to help cultivate college health and well-being. Intervene is based on a well-studied Pro-Social Bystander Intervention Theory, which suggests seven steps for successfully intervening in a problematic situation. The video, which is available to preview below and for on-campus training through Learning Launch, models how students can successfully navigate these steps in an authentic fashion, utilizing a variety of personal strategies.
