In partnership with NAMI New Hampshire, NHTI provides education to the College community on recognizing the signs of a person at risk for suicide, and how to connect the person to help.  This will take place through young adult training, peer counseling and support, and classroom instruction. The grant focuses, too, on increasing protective factors and building relationships and a network of support.  A key component will also be ensuring the College has an effective Postvention plan in place, if the need should arise.  All of these efforts will be accomplished by partnering with faculty, counseling staff, residence life staff and all stakeholders and student groups.
