Opportunity SM-11-002: The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Mental Health Services is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2011 Campus Suicide Prevention grants. The purpose of this program is to facilitate a comprehensive approach to preventing suicide in institutions of higher education. This program is designed to assist colleges and universities in their efforts to prevent suicide attempts and completions and to enhance services for students with mental and behavioral health problems, such as depression and substance use/abuse that put them at risk for suicide and suicide attempts. The Campus Suicide Prevention grants supports an array of campus activities to help the grantee build a solid foundation for delivering and sustaining effective mental health and substance abuse prevention and treatment services. Successful applicants will provide a coherent and detailed conceptual "roadmap" of the process by which they have assessed or intend to assess suicide prevention needs and plan/implement infrastructure development strategies that meet those needs. The plan put forward in the grant application must show the linkages among needs, the proposed infrastructure development strategy, and increased system capacity that will enhance and sustain effective prevention programs and services which support SAMHSA's first Strategic initiative of preventing substance abuse and mental illness. The plan must also address the needs of youth at high-risk identified by the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention; including, but not limited to lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) youth, American Indian/Alaska Natives (AI/AN), military family members and veterans. As a result of the Garrett Lee Smith Campus Suicide Prevention grants, colleges and universities will: * increase the amount of training to students, faculty and staff on suicide prevention and mental health promotion * increase collaboration among campus and community partners to deliver the message that suicide prevention is everyone's responsibility * increase the number of educational seminars and informational materials for students, faculty, staff and family members on suicide prevention, identification and reduction of risk factors such as depression and substance use/abuse * increase help-seeking among students and reduce stigma for seeking care for mental and behavioral health issues among students * increase the promotion of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Applications responsive to this Request for Application must implement evidence-based or best practices that will create or expand capacity to address the following SAMHSA Strategic Initiative: Prevention of Substance Abuse and Mental Illness - Create prevention prepared communities where individuals, families, schools, workplaces, and communities take action to prevent and reduce mental illness and substance abuse across the lifespan. The Campus Suicide Prevention Grant Program is authorized under the Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act (Section 520E-2 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended).

- Additional Information on Eligibility
- Eligibility for SAMHSA's Campus Suicide Prevention Grant program is limited to institutions of higher education as a statutory requirement (per Section 520E-2 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended). Applicants from both public and private institutions may apply, including State universities, private four-year colleges and universities (including those with religious affiliations), Minority Serving Institutions of higher learning (see Appendix H-Glossary), and community colleges. Entities that have previously been awarded a Campus Suicide Prevention Grant are not eligible. SAMHSA is further limiting the eligibility to applicants who have not previously received an award in order to allow for a broader distribution of the limited funds across campuses and universities. There are over 4,000 non-profit colleges and universities in the United States and SAMHSA would like that the opportunities for this limited resource be expanded. Limiting the eligibility to applicants who have not previously received an award is a sound and prudent strategy for the expansion of the prevention and promotion vision of this Law across American campuses and universities while simultaneously encouraging appropriate sustainability planning. Such institutions may carry out the activities of this grant through for example, college health/wellness/counseling centers, college and university psychological services centers, mental/behavioral health centers, psychological training clinics, academic departments or institutions of higher education-supported, evidence-based mental health and substance abuse programs. The activities of this grant may be carried out with the engagement of student-run services such as student organizations and/or student government councils. If a consortium is formed to carry out the activities of this grant, a single institution in the consortium must be the legal applicant, the recipient of the award on behalf of the consortium, and the entity legally responsible for satisfying the grant requirements. The statutory authority for this program prohibits grants to for-profit agencies.
