The Jed Foundation—in partnership with the College Student Mental Wellness Advocacy Coalition and Hi, How Are You Project (HHAYP)—has released an emergency preparedness guidebook for student housing managers on how to handle the sudden and tragic loss of a community resident.

Titled Responding to Suicide: Postvention Guidance for Student Housing Managers, the guidebook offers protocols for engaging with law enforcement, communicating with campus officials and the residential community, facilitating rapid support, memorializing the deceased, and planning for long-term and future approaches to prevention and postvention.
