Suicide Intervention

Suicide Intervention Program

The Suicide Intervention Program is designed to reduce the risk of self-harming behaviors by reaching out and connecting to students when incidents of concern are reported the University. Health and Wellness connects students to mental health services on and off campus, while working with each individual to alleviate stressors creating a barrier to academic success, including finances, academics, and living arrangements.To report a concern or to speak with someone email livewell@uw.edu or call 206.543.6085.Our goal is to promote and foster a healthier environment for all students. Please note this program is not designed to intervene in an emergency. If you, or someone you know is in an emergent situation please contact 911 for an immediate response.
