SAVE-A-LIFE College Project
Looking Out for One Another

College is an exciting, new life experience but at times, can be a very a difficult transition for students. When it comes to mental health, CHADS is available and accessible, ready to spread that message that no one has to go through the journey alone!

Our Program:
CHADS trains Resident directors and assistants as well as freshman students to recognize signs of distress in themselves, fellow students, friends and family members. Those participating in the program not only learn the signs and symptoms of depression and suicide but will also be given the skills and resources that will enable them to seek help from a trusted adult or organization for a variety of mental health issues. All participants will also be given a handy resource guide after the presentation that contains helpful information including local and national resources, signs and symptoms for a number of mental illnesses as well as a refresher for how and when to use the ACT® lifesaving action.
