The Ohio State University
SUICIDE PREVENTION PROGRAM
OSUSPP is a stand-alone office supported by Student Life, the College of Education and Human Ecology, the Graduate School, and Military and Veterans Services. We are located on the 4th floor of the Physical Activity and Educational Services (PAES) building.
Suicide is complicated and tragic, but it is often preventable. We can decrease suicide and suicide attempts by increasing student, staff, and faculty knowledge and adaptive attitudes about help-seeking and reducing the stigma of mental illness, as well as acknowledging the importance of seeking help or treatment. Knowing the warning signs, risk factors, and protective factors can help save lives.
A main service provided by The Suicide Prevention Program Are REACH© Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Trainings. These trainings help faculty, staff, and students Recognize warning signs, Engage with empathy, Ask directly about suicide, Communicate hope, and Help Suicidal individuals to access care and treatment.
Outreach opportunities and program events are important to promoting a campus culture of care, increasing suicide prevention knowledge and advocacy, building connections, and fostering hope. As such, OSUSPP offers a variety of ways to engage students, staff, and faculty in our suicide prevention efforts.
There are no upcoming events at this time.
