Suicide Intervention Program

What We Do

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.

Why Make a Referral?

  • Student expressing suicidal thoughts or plans but who may not be connected to mental health services
  • Student who may need support with their academics after a hospitalization or intensive treatment
  • Student is facing one more stressors including finances, academics, and living arrangements
  • Student in need assistance connecting to therapy on campus or in the community, or reaffirming any mental health connections they may already have in place

When to Make a Referral

A student has posted, emailed, texted or made statements about ending their life or alluding to suicide or killing themselves.
  • You become aware that a student has a past history of suicide and you are concerned about recent behavior that indicates they may be considering suicide again.
  • Attempts to connect a student you are worried about to therapy or mental health services like the Counseling Center or Hall Health Mental Health have not been successful, or you are not able to confirm if a student is connected to a therapist or counselor.
