Building a Comprehensive, Sustainable Campus Suicide Prevention Program Using a Public Health Approach

Recorded On: 09/30/2020

Building a Comprehensive, Sustainable Campus Suicide Prevention Program Using a Public Health Approach 


To address the critical issue of suicide among college students, it is important to consider expanding our traditional scope of mental health services and implement a comprehensive approach that reaches the broader campus culture as well as students who are at risk. This workshop will highlight and explore strategies and best practices associated with building comprehensive, sustainable suicide prevention programs within college and university settings. Drawing from several conceptual models that have informed comprehensive and successful suicide prevention programs, we will explore prevention and intervention strategies informed by the public health approach and will examine the ways in which campus suicide prevention programs can establish a solid framework that will help them operate with a clear mission and focus, a safe, integrated, and effective service model, and a strong and sustainable core. 

This webinar is partially sponsored by the American College Health Foundation Aetna Student Health Fund.
