The purpose of this program is to support a comprehensive public health and evidence-based approach that: (1) enhances mental health services for all college students, including those at risk for suicide, depression, serious mental illness (SMI)/serious emotional disturbances (SED), and/or substance use disorders that can lead to school failure; (2) prevents and reduces suicide, and mental and substance use disorders; (3) promotes help-seeking behavior; and (4) improves the identification and treatment of at-risk college students so they can successfully complete their studies.
