Michigan Daily Features CAPS Suicide Prevention

In a recent Michigan Daily article, "CAPS expands programs, releases new suicide prevention videos," Kaela Theut (Daily Staff Reporter), describes CAPS recent and previous work in suicide prevention at UM.  

Theut shared highlights from the new videos released by CAPS, as well as comments from CAPS Coordinator of Suicide Prevention, Jamye Banks Ph.D.

“The videos are part of our larger approach to suicide prevention for our campus,” Banks said.  “If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then hopefully a moving picture is worth more. Meaning, we tend to watch videos more than we read emails or websites, etc. Further, the videos capture scenarios that could provide a more realistic view and thus be more relatable and beneficial. We want to provide information and tools for all of us on campus to change the story — for individuals, and for our campus — change the story to one of hope and knowledge.”
