In this role she addresses suicide and mental health issues on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus as a part of a multi-faceted, population-level strategy for engaging with partners. With campus and community partners, she works to strengthen campus practices and policies relating to suicide prevention and mental health services, reduce stigma surrounding mental health issues, provide education to the campus community, and promote help-seeking behaviors among students. She is the chair of UW-Madison’s Suicide Prevention Council, serving as the backbone support to campus suicide prevention and mental health promotion efforts. In this role, she leads campus partners in establishing a common agenda for the campus, identifying shared measurement strategies, aligns cross-campus efforts, and facilitates connections among campus and community partners.
