Sep 12, 2012 3:07 PM: BGSU fosters ‘culture of care’ for suicide prevention
It’s a familiar scenario: a faculty member notices that a previously engaged student is missing class and now looks unkempt. Concerned, the faculty member would like to approach the student but doesn’t know where to begin. Or students become alarmed when a friend begins drinking more than usual and seems pessimistic and negative. Not wanting to insult the friend, or afraid of making things worse, they say nothing. Or perhaps it’s the first-year student who just seems lost and without a group with whom to bond. These can all be indications of someone who is having difficulty adjusting to life on campus, who is struggling with a mental health concern or who has experienced a traumatic life event. Some of these individuals may also be having thoughts of suicide.
