Distress related to mental health concerns, suicidal thoughts, attempts to die by suicide, and completed suicides are an unfortunate but very real experience for students at Bucknell. We believe that suicide is preventable and that the first steps to preventing deaths is creating a community that is a) aware of signs that a person may be considering suicide, and b) able to take the next steps to help a person at risk. You'll also learn about the importance of self-care, especially when supporting others. The more Bucknellians who have this training, the greater the chance that a student at risk will get the help they need when they most need it. You must complete the training module by August 24.
