The Wellness Resource Center is helping bring mental health awareness to campus during Suicide Prevention Week.
According to Suicide Prevention Graduate Assistant Rachel Lawrence, suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students, and everybody will be affected by mental health issues at some point in knowing someone who experiences them.
“We’re kind of just trying to get recognition that that this is important and you don’t have to be confused,” she said.
Tonight, MU will be showing the documentary “The Truth About Suicide” at 7:00 p.m. in the Benton Bingham Ballroom and will hold a panel afterward. Thursday, the campus will hold a suicide prevention training session at 12 upstairs in the student center.
