Emory Cares For You

Emory Cares 4 U is a campus-wide suicide-prevention effort.  The mission of Emory Cares 4 U is to provide culturally relevant awareness and support that fosters an integrated community of caring and enhanced well-being in order to reduce stigma and prevent suicide at Emory University.  Our goals include:

  • Create a caring and inclusive community in which the stigma associated with mental health problems is reduced.
  • Strengthen Emory’s infrastructure with regard to suicide prevention and response, tracking and surveillance, screening students for stress and distress, and linking them to appropriate resources.
  • Implement evidence-based gatekeeper programs that will enable members of the Emory community to identify students at risk.
  • Develop and offer educational programs related to wellness, health promotion, and suicide prevention.
  • Enhance Emory’s telephone hotline program (Helpline) so that students can easily access hotline assistance.
  • Create and disseminate informational materials to all members of the Emory community and their loved ones with regard to wellness, health promotion, and suicide prevention.
