Lady Gaga tackles global calls for suicide prevention, mental health support

St. Joseph & # 39; s University has been offering its own suicide prevention program for about a decade. In the past year, the program has doubled, reaching 300 members of the campus community, compared with 150 in the previous year. One of the critical aspects of the training is, according to Greg Nicholls, director of St. Joe's counseling services, preparing the students to ask their peers directly whether they think they are harming themselves so that they can get help.
