Three college students a day, every day, commit suicide. The good news is, you can do something about it. You can make a difference. You can save a life. And, you can do it by doing something as simple as starting a conversation. What we’re talking about is not feeling down in the dumps when things go wrong, but a major depressive disorder, the most disabling form of depression, lasting at least 2 weeks, having an impact on the person’s ability to do school work, perform daily activities, and maintain relationships with other students. A former writer for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Frank King uses his lifetime battle with depression and his skills as a speaker and comedian as a vehicle for social change on campus, and to teach you how to become a Mental Health First Responder. First you learn Signs and Symptoms, and then Solutions.
