U-M Counseling and Psychological Services

Stop Student Suicide

  • What if……. the number of deaths by suicide was zero each year?
  • How can we address and accomplish a culture of caring for students in any level of psychological distress?
  • How can we promote and give tools to enact 2 central themes of “hope” and “resiliency”?

These questions have driven CAPS to do something more around suicide prevention for our campus.  

Do something: Stop Student Suicide: we can all change the story

Stop Student Suicide

This semester, we have continued our do something:  Stop Student Suicide work. To mark Suicide Prevention Month, Messages of Hope were displayed prominently outside of the Michigan Union in September.  Thousands of students, faculty, staff, visitors to campus, and community members were able to read and take Messages with them, spreading these hopeful words throughout our campus community.
