Purdue-Fort Wayne Obtains Three-Year Suicidie Prevention Grant
Monday, February 17, 2020

Purdue University Fort Wayne has more money to help prevent suicides on campus.

The school has obtained a three-year, $582,000 grant meant for suicide prevention. The grant was secured through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It was awarded to Jeannie DiClementi, an associate professor in the Department of Psychology.

DiClementi plans to use the grant money for a program called Partners United for Student Mental Health. Its focus is to strengthen the links that already exist between PFW and area service providers, including those on campus, and to fill gaps to better address the mental health, substance abuse, and suicide prevention needs of students.
