LRC Tip of the Week: COLOR YOUR WORLD COORDINATED!

Article *
As an art college, it seems only natural to suggest the use of color as a tool. You coordinate your wardrobe, your apartment, and sometimes meals around color…why not use color to coordinate and organize your courses. By assigning each course a color, you can mark assignments on your calendar, keep all of your papers in the right folder and grab the right notebook so you spend less time searching for the right tools. Magic markers, pencils, bins, folders and notebooks all come in a variety of colors that can make organizing kind of fun, and free up time for other activities. For more tips on organizing, sign up with a peer tutor in the Learning Resource Center (LRC).

Peer tutors are on duty MondayThursday and it easy to sign up to work with them! Sign up sheets are on the bulletin board in the LRC space in the Learning Commons!

National Suicide Prevention Week

Article *
National Suicide Prevention Week is September 10 – 16; surrounding World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10th.

This is a time to share resources and stories in an effort to shed light on this highly taboo and stigmatized topic. While suicide prevention is important to address year-round, Suicide Prevention Week provides a dedicated time to come together with collective passion and strength around a difficult topic. The truth is, we can all benefit from honest conversations about mental health conditions and suicide, because just one conversation can change a life.

There’s no single cause for suicide. Suicide most often occurs when stressors exceed current coping abilities of someone suffering from a mental health condition. Depression is the most common condition associated with suicide, and it is often undiagnosed or untreated. Conditions like depression, anxiety and substance problems, especially when unaddressed, increase risk for suicide. Yet it’s important to note that most people who actively manage their mental health conditions lead fulfilling lives.

Suicide Warning Signs

Something to look out for when concerned that a person may be suicidal is a change in behavior or the presence of entirely new behaviors. This is of sharpest concern if the new or changed behavior is related to a painful event, loss, or change. Most people who take their lives exhibit one or more warning signs, either through what they say or what they do.

Visit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (afsp.org) to learn about having the conversation to #stop

If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741-741.
