About

With an increasing need to focus on our nation's mental health, consider helping dedicated programs at NSU focused on suicide prevention efforts and mental health resources.

Mental Health Awareness

According to the World Health Organization, a survey taken from June 2020 to August 2020, showed that “30% reported disruptions to access for medications for mental, neurological and substance use disorders” as a related result of COVID-19.

The Psychology Services Center at NSU has been a standing resource to all residents of the South Florida area including children, adolescents, adults, and elderly clients. The clinics, which specialize in areas ranging from anxiety to psychotherapy, have continued to see patients during these tough times in both virtual and in-person formats.

Suicide and Violence Prevention

With the upcoming holidays, increased isolation can exacerbate suicidal thoughts and violence. The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention states that suicide is, “the 10th leading cause of death for all Americans. Each year, more than 36,000 people take their own lives. In addition, more than 374,000 are treated in emergency departments for self-inflicted injuries.”

At the NSU Office of Suicide and Violence Prevention, faculty and staff continue to support crisis prevention efforts, with a focus on suicide prevention. Staff is continuously devoted to creating a safety net at NSU to help prevent suicide and violence. From sharing presentations of warning signs and providing resources to help, NSU is dedicated to healing – together.


Our gift to you!
