Recommendations

System-level efforts at supporting student mental health and implementing robust suicide prevention efforts have been driven by a set of eleven recommendations based on national best practices and local student and campus need. Established in 2016, these recommendations continue to serve as guiding principles in strong suicide prevention and mental health efforts across the Montana University System.
