Suicide Prevention Regional Conference Flyer


Pre-registration Encouraged

Students, staff, and faculty are invited to come together as a community to share best practices for suicide prevention and mental health awareness. Our goal is to create a community of caring on college campuses by raising awareness and education on suicide prevention, reducing stigma, and connecting students to resources and referrals.

Who Should Attend the Conference?


Students: All students are welcome. Student Leaders of organizations, teaching assistants, peer educators, and Resident Assistants are highly encouraged to attend.

Staff: Front line staff or anyone who provides direct services to students such as academic advisors, financial aid counselors, disability programs staff, career counselors, and EOP advisors.

Faculty: All faculty interested in supporting and providing campus resources for students that may be in emotional distress.


The conference is free to students, includes continental breakfast and lunch, provides amazing keynote speakers, and the opportunity to participate and view Send Silence Packing, a suicide prevention awareness exhibit.
