SUICIDAL? CALL YOUR NEAREST 9-1-1 OR THE NATIONAL SUICIDE HOTLINE (800)-273-TALK (8255)

The University of Toledo Center for Education in Targeted Violence and Suicide supports the perspective that the optimal approach to addressing suicide is through a holistic approach. Specifically, we are dedicated to prevention, intervention, response and recovery. Prevention involves best practice in educating students, faculty, and staff on the warning signs that an individual is at risk of suicide. Intervention involves the response to the at-risk individual. Once identified as at-risk, members of the center ensure confidentiality and work with the individual and his/her family in effort to lessen the likelihood of suicide. In cases in which a suicide occurs at a school, university, or workplace, the members are available to guide the administration through the response. Proper response is of the utmost importance, as it lessens the likelihood of confusion and possible cluster suicides. Also part of the response process is working with the district, university, or workplace in helping lessen the psychological and productivity impact.
