New crisis lifeline signage placed on campus

A sign on a Brock wall says "we are here for you" and offered crisis support numbers and text

In an ongoing commitment to the health and well-being of the campus community, the BroncoFit office has installed new suicide and crisis lifeline signage in various locations on campus. These signs are a part of the university’s efforts to ensure that every student, employee and faculty member has immediate access to crisis support whenever they need it, including direct links to on-campus counseling services.

The 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline offers compassionate support to those needing help. It is a crucial resource for individuals in crisis, providing free and confidential emotional support 24 hours a day, seven days a week for people experiencing a suicidal crisis or emotional distress. The new signs in the parking garages also provide information about accessing counseling services on campus, which offers a range of mental health support options tailored to the campus community’s needs.

New signage has been installed on the fourth and fifth floors of the Lincoln Parking Garage and the fourth floor of the Brady Parking Garage, as well as mirror clings across Campus Recreation, on-campus housing, the Student Union Building and Albertsons Library. These locations were chosen for their high visibility and accessibility, ensuring everyone is aware of where they can find help.

This initiative is a collaboration across campus and with community partner, Central District Health, which helped to fund the parking garage signs and bathroom mirror clings. Each partner has played an important role in bringing this initiative to life to influence campus efforts in fostering a thriving community for all.
