Support the Suspenders4Hope


Suspenders4Hope™ is a comprehensive, strategic approach to promoting mental wellness and preventing suicide, substance abuse and sexual violence. Showcasing real stories of hope, help-seeking and resiliency, Suspenders4Hope™ aims to increase connections and end the stigma surrounding mental health.

Wichita State University started the #WeSupportU Suspenders4Hope™ Mental Wellness and Preventing Suicide program in 2015 when the Counseling and Prevention Services team was awarded a SAMSHA Garrett Lee Smith Campus Suicide Prevention grant.
