Great Minds Dare to Care

The Great Minds Dare to Care is a University-wide collaborative suicide prevention initiative designed to foster shared responsibility for building a community of care at Seton Hall University. This initiative will provide all Seton Hall Community members with opportunities to engage in trainings, resources, and activities, that will promote tools and strategies for managing mental health and helping others. A sense of community and belonging is a major factor associated with student wellness and the prevention of suicide.
