Suicide Prevention

Home 9 Outreach & Prevention 9 Suicide Prevention

Suicide is a serious public health problem that can have lasting impact on individuals, families, and communities. While suicide is often very complicated with many contributing factors , it is preventable. The goal of suicide prevention programs is to decrease the stigma around mental health and talking about suicide so that we can increase factors that promote healing, growth, and resilience. Knowing the warning signs for suicide, resources that are available, and how to get help can help save lives.

The UCI Campus community has several different suicide prevention, gatekeeper, and awareness building programs. Each program offers something different to reach the diverse and unique needs of our diverse campus community. To learn more about each program click on the links below.
