Suicide Prevention Program

The professional staff at CAPS is strongly committed to ongoing efforts toward suicide prevention. In 1996 an endowment fund was created by Mr. Lyell Clay in memory of Harrison Bowne "Tersh" Smith Jr. This fund supports CAPS' efforts in relation to suicide prevention. The program entails essential components of community education, depression and suicide assessment and treatment. The CAPS clinical staff also attempts to stay abreast of current relevant research and trends in the field of suicidology. U.Va. faculty, staff, or student groups interested in arranging for presentations pertaining to suicide prevention should contact the CAPS Crisis Management Coordinator for further discussion.
