 Suicide Awareness

Suicide is the second-leading cause of death for people between the ages of 15 and 24. We created this guidebook to help students better understand suicide and depression, how to recognize warning signs in themselves or their peers, and what they can do to intervene. Key updates to the guide include:

 - An in-depth Q&A with psychiatry expert, Dr. Schlozman
 - A comprehensive overview of the connection between mental health, depression and suicide
 - Warning signs of suicide and advice for students who are experiencing or know someone who is displaying these signs
 - Help and resources for students struggling with depression
