Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people ages 18-24. What is not always captured by this statistic is the strong emotional impact that suicide has on young people who are losing peers, friends, partners, and siblings to suicide and mental health issues.
We are in a mental health crisis. There needs to be a change in the way we approach to suicide and mental health, particularly on college campuses.
But where do we start?
I’m Fine: A Student Perspective on Suicide and Mental Health on College Campuses takes an in-depth look into what schools can be doing right now to positively impact the well-being of their students.
In this book, Emily Kumpf shares perspectives, including her own personal mental health battles as well as detailed research and insights from nearly 20 leaders across the country who dedicate their lives to preventing suicide and promoting mental health.
At its core, I’m Fine helps to decrease stigma, break stereotypes, provide psychoeducation, and increase conversations around mental health, enabling students to answer the question “How are you doing?” with more than a cursory “I’m Fine.”
Emily provides a framework and solutions to suicide prevention and improved student mental health that university leaders can incorporate on their campuses. This book can change your life, the life of a loved one, and the lives of college students across the world.
