Campus Resources

Suicide is the second leading cause of death in people between in the ages of 10 and 44 in Idaho. Many people believe that talking about suicide will put the idea in someone’s head or make their thoughts of suicide more lethal. Research has taught us that not only is this a myth, but suicide is actually preventable. For more information on current suicide research, visit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
