More than 70 higher education administrators and prevention professionals attended the kick-off of the Connecticut Campus Suicide Prevention Initiative on April 4 at Central Connecticut State University. The Wheeler Clinic organized the event and administers the project funded by the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) through a federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Center for Mental Health Services. The Jed Foundation's Executive Director, John MacPhee and Medical Director, Dr. Victor Schwartz, attended the event to lead a presentation on CampusMHAP, the Jed Foundation and SPRC's Guide to Campus Mental Health Action Planning (CampusMHAP). Four institutions of higher education in Connecticut received grants as part of this three-year initiative, and next fall will implement college-age prevention and early intervention strategies to reduce suicide. The project is an expansion of the Connecticut Healthy Campus Initiative and a collaborative effort with the Connecticut Suicide Advisory Board.
