Every Fall we participate in Suicide Awareness Week to increase awareness and understanding of each person’s job to eradicate suicide across campus and the community. It is our hope through this week, and our Tide Against Suicide initiative, that the discussions, training, tools, and resources will not only equip people with the confidence to help someone in distress but to give hope to those who are struggling. Please see the events below and plan to join us for this year’s Suicide Awareness Week.
