“Suicide Prevention Symposium: Mental Health in the Changing Higher Education Landscape,” December 1 – 10, 2020

The New York State College Health Association (NYSCHA) is partnering with SUNY and the NYS Office of Mental Health to offer the virtual “Suicide Prevention Symposium: Mental Health in the Changing Higher Education Landscape” from December 1 – 10, 2020.

The goal of the Symposium is to enhance knowledge and skills regarding suicide prevention and mental health for the college population. By bringing college health and student affairs professionals, faculty, and students from throughout New York State together in this collaborative effort, we will have the opportunity to address the factors that put students at higher risk of suicide as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and to discuss suicide prevention strategies that colleges and universities can take to enhance the well-being of college students.

We will be offering presentations, discussion groups, and networking sessions. The full schedule of sessions is posted on the Annual Meeting page on the NYSCHA website.
