About Project Hope

Everyone needs help at some time in their life. By knowing the signs and risk-factors of suicide and resources that can help individuals in crisis, you can bring hope to others and help save lives.

Our Mission

Project Hope will help foster the healthiest learning environment possible at Northwest Missouri State University by preventing suicide and suicide-related behaviors through education, promotion of mental health, and encouragement of help-seeking behaviors.

Our Goals

The five goals of Project Hope are to:

  1. Help Northwest students adapt to college life in healthy ways
  2. Destigmatize mental health issues and help-seeking behavior
  3. Educate students on suicide-related issues
  4. Strengthen Northwest policies concerning students in crisis
  5. Forge strong campus/community partnerships centered on suicide prevention efforts

Project Hope is made possible by grant funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) under the Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act Campus Suicide Prevention Program (grant no. SM058474).
