South Dakota State University’s Lost&Found chapter will be holding several events this semester in conjunction with the organization’s 10th anniversary.
Lost&Found is a 501(c)3 nonprofit mental health education and research organization based in Sioux Falls. It held several virtual events Thursday in recognition of its 10th anniversary.
In recognition of National Suicide Prevention Week (Sunday-Sept. 12), the chapter will place flags outside the University Student Union to represent the number of suicides that took place in 2018.
In addition, the chapter will host self-care events via Zoom twice each month. Representatives from the SDSU Student Health Clinic and Counseling Services, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and other mental health advocates will also host events throughout the semester.
Lost&Found delivers resilience education and mental health resources through student-led campus chapters at the University of South Dakota, South Dakota State University, University of Sioux Falls, Dakota Wesleyan University and Augustana University. The organization takes a data-driven, strengths-based approach to suicide prevention efforts, delivering research tools that allow campus administrators to quickly understand and respond to student mental health needs with programs, policies and people.
