Suicide Prevention Week: September 5 - 11

Unpack Your Troubles

Suicide is the second-leading cause of death among college students. Many people who die by suicide also suffered from depression or substance abuse; two very treatable conditions. UB recognizes national Suicide Prevention Week during the fall, annually with a variety of programs FREE to UB students. All programs are facilitated by UB counseling, health, and wellness education professionals.
