U-M Counseling and Psychological Services

Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) continues to lead efforts to increase student suicide awareness and education through the do something: Stop Student Suicide initiative.

In order to reduce the silence and the mystery that surrounds suicide, we offer these three videos, featuring knowledgeable voices, focused on what contributes to thoughts of suicide among our UM students and more importantly, how you can respond.

Being a member of the UM community provides a unique opportunity and responsibility to make a real difference in the lives of our students. As a quilt is made of many different strands and colors, our many different roles can also combine to form a strong support network for all students. It is through this support network that we can "change the story" for one individual AND on a campus-wide level.

These videos highlight the following:

  1. How faculty can effectively assist a student
  2. What may influence suicidal thinking among our students
  3. How Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR), the CAPS suicide prevention training, is something we can all do to help

CAPS Suicide Prevention - A Focus on Students

CAPS Suicide Prevention - Using Our Strengths as a Community


The videos were made possible by a generous donation from the Confidence Foundation, on behalf of Joshua and Cory Logan.

Together, we can all change the story.
