Suicide Prevention Awareness Month


Students’ mental health is always a priority and within the Truman community there are so many who want to be of assistance, but may not know what to do if someone needs help. September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Through the University’s partnership with Complete Family Medicine, Truman students and employees have access to valuable, free, online training programs offered through Preferred Family Health. Suicide prevention and training programs are available on their website, including QPR and Mental Health First Aid. The University is also looking into some in-person training options and will provide more information when it is available.
Students also have the opportunity to download MySSP on their phone which provides a variety of resources, including the ability to initiate an online chat with a licensed counselor. The app is available through Google Play and the App store.  

University Counseling Services remains a valuable resource available to all students. UCS will not deny services to any student based on their financial situation. There are several options available that will reduce the cost substantially or even eliminate it entirely.
