THE CAMPUS SUICIDE PREVENTION CENTER OF
VIRGINIA
The mission of the Campus Suicide Prevention Center of
Virginia is to reduce risk for suicide across Virginia's higher
education settings by providing campuses with training,
consultation and prevention resources. Services are
available at no cost to all Virginia college and university
campuses and are provided through a partnership of the
Division of Injury and Violence Prevention at the Virginia
Department of Health, the Substance Abuse and Mental
Health Services Administration and the Institute for
Innovation in Health and Human Services at James Madison
University.
The Campus Suicide Prevention Resource Center is designed
to help campus planners address questions such as:
•As caring and committed professionals, what can we do to
prevent suicide?
•How do we use our resources most efficiently?
•How do we create meaningful and lasting change?
•How can we promote mental health for all so that fewer
people will be at risk?
