Buffalo State Cares will be a collaborative effort with a number of community partners including the Crisis Services, Erie County Medical Center, UB Family Medicine Special Services , Buffalo General Hospital, and the VA.
These partners will support campus efforts to increase awareness about suicide prevention and support students in suicidal crisis. The community partners will also assist us in developing a model policy relating to student transportation and follow-up when there is a mental health emergency on campus.
