SVSU is committed to creating a safe, supportive community for learning and working, and we engage student support systems as part of that process. Our students deserve a place to learn, grow and succeed. We recognize mental health issues are a growing concern for college students and can impact a student’s academic and social experience.
Family, friends, faculty and staff can play a significant role in supporting students’ mental health and well-being. Join us in making SVSU a place where students can realize their full potential.
There are many reasons why you may feel the way you do. If you’re in crisis, there are support and treatment options available.
Never hesitate to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 800-273-8255. If your situation is immediately life threatening, call 911 or get yourself to the nearest emergency room. If you need support, ask someone to come with you.
