The Buckeye Campaign Against Suicide (BCAS) is a student organization that was formed to educate the campus about mental health issues, the signs of suicide and how to prevent it. BCAS hosts RUOK? Day, an OSU Signature Event that brings together over a thousand individuals to learn about mental health and suicide prevention. BCAS also hosts a Survivor’s Day Luminary to support those who have lost a loved one to suicide.
Ohio State students are committed to promoting mental health and suicide prevention. No student should feel like they don’t matter, will be labeled “crazy,” or will be punished for getting help.
The only way to fight against the stigma and misinformation about mental health issues is to talk about them openly and honestly.
BCAS meetings often have fun discussions and activities relating to how we can improve our community and ourselves through education, outreach, and advocacy.
BCAS has meetings every Tuesday from 6:30-7:30pm in the Enarson Classroom Building room 254. If you ever have any questions, email email@example.com.
