Mental Health Awareness Month
Please see below for the events offered by The Cowell Center for Mental Health Awareness Month, May 2017.
Ask a question. Save a Life!
QPR is a training program and stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Sign-up here.
The film “It’s Real” looks at the experiences of 6 college students who have lived with or are living with mental health issues. The film is designed to raise awareness around mental health concerns.
Students in the film are sharing their personal experiences around their mental health, help-seeking behaviors, reaching out to friends, tearing down stigmas, and exploring the masculinity model.
The film is 25 minutes long and will be followed by a healthy discussion around help- seeking behaviors and campus resources. Dinner will be provided.
Come and join us to view the film. We would like your input.
Walk-ins are welcomed but please RSVP so that we can order enough food for everyone.
When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Campus Walks, you join the effort with thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow AFSP to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.
This event is presented by SCU and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Register here!
