Worldwide Suicide Prevention Week

Contact: Asia Wong · awong@loyno.edu

At Loyola, we are requesting that everyone leave a lighted tea candle (electronic) in their windows on Friday, September 9, to show their commitment to suicide prevention, to represent their support to persons who are suffering, and to mourn those lost to suicide. We will also be distributing information on how to recognize and help students at risk. If you wish to participate, please send an email with your name, building and office number to Asia Wong at awong@loyno.edu and a tea light will be delivered to your office.
 
Tea lights, magnets with the counselor on-call info and suicide prevention info cards are also being distributed to all on-campus residents. All first year students, and all on-campus upperclassmen are participating in Depression Awareness and Suicide Prevention presentations with our Health Advocates, (a student-to-student peer educator program).
 
Other events/ways to help:
 
  • Take the pledge: Print out and sign this pledge to show your commitment to stopping suicide. Post it in your office. If you prefer to sign in-person, we will be at a table in the Danna Student Center September 6 - September 9.
     
  • Take Solace/Give Solace - September 6 - September 9, One Loyola Room, Danna Student Center, First Floor

    We encourage  members of the Loyola community to write or draw words or images of comfort, love, encouragement and solace for themselves and each other. What keeps you going? What do you wish you could say to help someone else? Post your words and images  to share with others, and feel free to take with you any pieces that resonate for you.
