The Suicide and Violence Prevention staff are devoted to creating a safety net at NSU, helping to prevent suicide and violence. The most effective ways to prevent suicide and violence are to know the warning signs, take them seriously, and help the individual access the appropriate resources. The only real risk is in doing nothing.

By calling 988, you will be connected to the crisis resources mentioned below.
