Suicide Prevention

Subtitle

 


  

Ever since I lost my son,

 I have been at war with
 
suicide.
 
 
 
 few years ago, my oldest son, Joshua, committed suicide when he was only
 
 17 years old.
 
 Since then, I have been on a campaign to help others avoid having my experience.
 
 Colleges and Universities are in a unique position regarding suicide.
 
 
 While suicide is the 3 rd leading cause of death overall among young people, it is even higher among college students.

 

 

 Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among college students.  

 

                                                                                  

                                                                                                                                                          

   

A 2002 study by the American College Health Association estimated that 1 out of every 12 students has

made a suicide plan at one time or another in their academic life.

 

 It is absolutely essential that colleges provide students with resources to fight suicide.

 

I can help your institution by conducting talks and seminars that provide the information your students and

staff need to battle suicide.

 

 Suicide can strike a college without warning, and affect the morale of the entire institution. 

Please feel free to contact me on very short notice if needed.

I will arrive to your campus as fast as possible after a suicide has taken place. It’s important to take quick action

to avoid the phenomena of “copycat suicides.”
