Suicide Awareness and Prevention Program

The Suicide Awareness and Prevention Program at CAPS offers educational presentations, screenings for mental illness, and opportunities for training and consultation to all members of the campus community.

Pathways is the primary outreach and training instrument for suicide prevention and for identifying and responding to students at risk at Ithaca College.  All new resident assistants receive training in suicide awareness. Trainings for members of the campus community are offered through drop in sessions and through scheduled department sessions.
