Come see 'The Truth About Suicide: Real Stories of Depression in College' Thursday night
TOWSON, Md. (Oct. 31, 2006) –The Counseling Center is hosting a special film presentation covering depression and suicide in college students on Thursday, Nov. 2.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students, according to the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention (AFSP). Unfortunately, many college students don't get the help they need because they don't know that depression is a common yet treatable illness.
On Thursday, at noon in the University Union Loch Raven Room, The Truth About Suicide: Real Stories of Depression in College will educate Towson University students, faculty and staff about depression and about how members of the community can best seek help for themselves and/or friends who are depressed and/or suicidal. The film will also cover the warning signs of depression and "other problems associated with suicide, as they are commonly experienced by college students and other young adults."
The film runs 27 minutes. Counseling Center staff will be available for questions and discussion following the film.
