Suicide Info


Together with Dr. Paul Granello (also at The Ohio State University), I conduct workshops and training on suicide prevention, assessment, and intervention.

In 2006, OSU was awarded funding by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for the development of a campus-wide suicide prevention plan ($225,000). In 2009, I was awarded funding for another three years for the project ($300,000> I serve as principal investigator for that project, and more than 70 campus and community partners are involved in the project. Since 2013, OSU has provided the funding to continue this program.

Paul was the Chief Science Officer and co-founder of The Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation.  In addition, he has received $1.2 million in funding from SAMHSA to do suicide prevention in Ohio schools. His screening project offered mental health screening to more than 30,000 middle and high school students in Ohio.

We have co-authored three books on suicide prevention, assessment, and intervention.
