Director’s Message

Darcy Haag Granello, Ph.D., LPCC-S

Principal Investigator, Ohio State University Campus Suicide Prevention Program
Professor of Counselor Education

Welcome to The Ohio State University Campus Suicide Prevention Program!

I am so glad you have taken time to learn more about our program, and I encourage you to explore this website to see what we have done, what ideas and services we can offer, and how you can get more involved with suicide prevention efforts on campus.

As you explore this website, you will quickly discover that our campus and community partnerships are at the heart of our program. Here at Ohio State, we have more than 70 partners working together to help in this important endeavor. Our partners provide outreach and training, funding for our work, and creative ideas and insights. They offer us opportunities to link with the campus and Columbus community in ways that would be impossible without their connections to the lives of our students, faculty, and staff. Most importantly, our partners provide us with their dedication and commitment. They give of their time and energy because they believe strongly that the entire campus and surrounding community need to work together to save lives.

I hope that as you explore this website, you will join us in supporting this partnership. Ultimately, we envision a campus where everyone supports mental health help-seeking, where students know how – and are willing – to access the available resources, where students, faculty, and staff feel comfortable reaching out to others in distress, and where every Buckeye who is in psychological pain recognizes that there are others who care and are willing to help. Together, we can work to create a campus culture of caring where suicide prevention truly becomes a shared campus responsibility.
