3-8-13This great campus was packed with excited students as Spring Break is about to begin. I made my way to the areas with the most foot traffic. The Kindness Bicycle got rave reviews.
This campus has a program to help those considering suicide. Called, “Be That One”, it focuses on education, outreach and peer support. The program addresses the four following points:
  • Raising awareness about the issue of college student suicide
  • Engaging faculty, staff and students to take an active role in suicide prevention
  • Providing focused trainings to campus groups around suicide prevention
  • Striving to ensure that U.T.’s systems, policies, culture, and environment are conducive to students’ mental health.
