THE MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS ON CAMPUSES
Across the U.S. and the world, college students are struggling with increased rates of anxiety, depression, and thoughts of suicide that affect their ability to study.
We are making a difference at CSU! At the Counseling Center, we provide support and empowerment for our diverse students to overcome barriers, we help students through crises, and we connect them to resources. Our most recent data show that our students experience more suicidal thoughts than students at other university counseling centers. Our staff and our campus-wide Suicide Prevention Task Force are working to help prevent suicide and improve our students’ overall well-being.
You can be part of the solution! Help us provide mental health resources to CSU students. This year, we most want to raise funds for two important needs:
- ADHD Assessment for students with financial need ($500/assessment is needed)
- Suicide prevention training: 12-17 staff, faculty and students certified to provide suicide prevention training or QPR – Question, Persuade, Refer ($500/person). These trainers will then train others on campus (each one training about 100 over the next 2 years) so that we can reach thousands with suicide prevention information in the next two years!
