Add to calendar

Beginning September 7, in honor of Suicide Prevention Week (September 5 - 11), Harper students and employees will be chalking the walk with mental health talk and other mental health signage. Take a walk around campus to learn more about mental health resources, how you can help a friend or loved who may be experiencing a mental health crisis, and come together to help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. In addition, be on the lookout for some on-campus tabling booths to learn more how you can get involved and promote mental health awareness. 

National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255
