Suicide Awareness Day is Wednesday, Feb. 6, and we hope you will help us encourage students, staff and faculty to wear orange to show your support for those whose lives have been affected by the suicide of friends, family members, students or colleagues, and to show that you want to reach out to those who might be considering suicide.
Reaching out early and preventing suicide requires the help of everyone at UBC.
On Feb. 6, we will have more information about suicide warning signs, how to talk about suicide, and discover support and resources. Outreach tables and teams will be located all over campus to help educate students, staff and faculty about suicide prevention. For more information or to become involved, contact Suzanne Jolly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-822-8762.
