Thank you for visiting our Tide Against Suicide page. We are so glad you are here.
Tide Against Suicide is a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention at the University of Alabama. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among U.S. college students. For a school the size of UA, more than 3,800 students think about suicide, 2,660 students develops a plan, and 570 attempt suicide every year. Tide Against Suicide aims to bring these numbers to zero. We imagine a non-judgmental place where suicide is talked about openly, and a community that rallies behind each other wherever they are on their journey. It is our hope that the discussions, training, tools, and resources provided by this initiative will not only equip people with the confidence to help someone in distress, but to open the door and give light and hope to those struggling.
We want to help and meet you right where you are. Let’s get started.
