An Annual LGBT Pride Celebration
Every year, during the month of June, the LGBT community celebrates in a number of different ways. Across the globe, various events are held during this special month as a way of recognizing the influence LGBT people have had around the world. Why was June chosen? Because it is when the Stonewall Riots took place, way back in 1969.
Announcements & Reports
988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline
On July 16, 2022, 988 will become the nationwide 3-digit dialing code for crisis and suicide prevention. It will replace the 1-800 number currently used by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. On this date, when someone calls 988 all phones in the U.S. (mobile and landline) will connect with the crisis/suicide prevention system. This will allow anyone in the U.S. to call 988 and get help designed specifically for someone dealing with a mental health crisis.

Each HSAC completed a county-specific needs assessment report that discussed findings related to six basic need areas and seven specialized need areas in their individual counties. These reports discuss the scope and nature of each need area, as well as local considerations, i.e. resources and timeframes for addressing, for priority needs areas.
To kick it off we will be welcoming everyone, especially those impacted by suicide and substance use disorder or themselves struggling with depression/anxiety to come join us in the Recovery Resource Center to create an art project on Monday, August 14, 2023. If you are unable to participate that day, please email Paige Hammond at email@example.com for a craft kit that you can do from home and will be displayed on Friday, September 8, 2023 in the Human Services Lecture Hall.
