#imhere is a suicide awareness and prevention initiative coordinated by Fairfield University Counseling & Psychological Services, Student Health Center, Campus Ministry, and FUSA. On March 26th, the University community will highlight the value of every life and dedicate themselves to saving lives. At Fairfield University, students are encouraged to help one another and, importantly, utilize the professional mental health services on campus at Counseling & Psychological Services.
Students, faculty and staff will wear #imhere wristbands to remind the community that we’re here for each other when someone is struggling with depressive or suicidal thoughts. Information tables will be set up in the Library, BCC, and Einstein Bagels. The #imhere initiative is funded by the Julia Ryder Sill Fund. Julia ’13 took her life on campus during her sophomore year.
