Suicide is a leading cause of death among students. Let’s change that. Together.

We help college & university campuses across Virginia increase their knowledge and create the infrastructure to…

  • Promote wellness & safety for students.
  • Identify & support those in distress.
  • Effectively respond to those at risk for suicide.

We are not a crisis response or emergency care center.

If you or someone you know is in crisis, call 988.

In case of a life-threatening emergency, call 911.

Our Mission:

Our mission is to equip Virginia’s higher education communities to proactively and responsively address suicide risk.
