Together we can make a large-scale campus culture change toward actively and visibly engaging in stopping student suicide. Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) can’t do this alone. You know best the unique culture, “language,” and needs of students in your unit, school, college, and department. We need the collaborative efforts and shared responsibility of each of our communities, with CAPS' leadership and support.
You don’t have to be a counselor or an expert to engage students and faculty in this conversation, to be a visible member of the “community of caring,” and to increase students’ hope and resiliency.
Start connecting with your students around this issue. Think big, think creatively! What if there were no student deaths by suicide? What type of project can you create that builds upon the culture of your school, college, or department?
Connect with your CAPS liaison and start a dialogue.
Together we can make a difference.
More information and support to follow through the CAPS liaison network. Or please contact CAPS (734-764-8312) and ask to speak with a representative from the Stop Student Suicide team.
