Hope & Help App
Counseling Services is excited to announce that a new and important app is now available for students, staff, and faculty. The Columbus State Hope & Help app provides an additional way to reach students and others who may be considering suicide, provide suicide prevention education for everyone, and link to community resources.
Statistics show that suicide is a leading cause of death for college students, with 1 in 10 contemplating it. Especially during this time of uncertainty and social isolation, some students will feel distressed or know others who are. According to research, 67% of those contemplating suicide tell a friend about their intentions first, so knowing how to help can be life-saving.
You can find the Columbus State Hope & Help app on both the Apple Store and Google Play Store by searching “Columbus State Hope & Help" or using the following links:
The original app was developed by Lakeland Community College in Kirtland, which granted approval for Columbus State to customize and share with our community.
Research suggests that alcohol and other drug misuse impacts students at a variety of levels, from academic failure to delayed advancement, due to injury or student conduct issues. Given alcohol’s detrimental effect on student performance, institutions strive to decrease high-risk drinking on campuses as a means of enhancing the quality of the learning environment for all students.
ScreenU Alcohol provides feedback to students about their own alcohol use and risk for experiencing negative consequences and links students to the resources and support needed to help them be successful academically and beyond.
