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.

Are You Having Suicidal Thoughts?

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.

Help is available on campus. SVSU offers no-cost and confidential for students and employees.  These services can connect you with further resources available on and off campus.

There are also ways to help yourself get through crisis. Consider exploring the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Help Yourself page which has information on building and using a support network, making a safety plan, connecting with communities and finding stories of people like you.
