Every day, millions of American college students struggle to keep afloat emotionally. The statistics are staggering. Half report overwhelming anxiety. 1 in 6 injure themselves by cutting, carving, burning or other means. Three college students commit suicide every day in the United States. While counseling programs at universities across the U.S. have evolved over the past 20 years, few actually meet students on their own terms in a way that decreases stigma and encourages them to access support.

Within 30 days in 2003, NYU lost two students to suicide — then five more students in the next 10 months. Facing a contagion, our campus needed to act quickly and decisively. A web of services was created that became the gold standard for treating vulnerable students, including a 24-hour hotline they can call anonymously. But a hotline wasn’t enough — we had to do something dramatic.

Please help us raise awareness to help those struggling with mental health issues. "Better to Live" can help start meaningful conversations and you can find support for various mental health issues on our website at http://www.bettertolivefilm.com.
