Suicide Prevention

Suicide. It's tough to talk about, but learning the facts and signs can save a life. Center for Counseling and Psychological Health (CCPH) is spreading the word, as part of a grant-funded project training individuals and groups to recognize those at risk, and intervene if needed. In October, 2009, the department received a second three-year federal grant to expand prevention efforts.

Nationwide help

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline provides free, confidential suicide prevention and intervention services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call toll-free, 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Learn more at

We at CCPH join Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy and other members of the UMass community in condemning “language intended to marginalize or make any member of our community unsafe” and agree that “we must all work together to ensure a University community defined by inclusion, respect and compassion.”
