OSU Task Force Releases Suicide Prevention And Mental Health Support Recommendations


Ohio State University created a task force earlier this year to review suicide prevention efforts and mental health support services after two students died in the last two years falling from parking garages. 

The panel has now issued a list of recommendations. They include promoting a caring campus culture; enhanced suicide screening procedures; creation of a "warm line" for students for non-emergency, peer-to-peer support; and making students more aware of current resources. Crisis hotline signs have already been placed in each campus parking garage. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
