Suicide Prevention

Mission Statement

Student Intervention is an outreach service provided by University Student Housing at Texas Tech University. We are dedicated to reaching out to students that are in need of crisis intervention or general resources. The goal in each step of the intervention process is to increase student success and the overall student's quality of life. We wish to serve students by connecting them to the tools they need and remind them of their motivating values.

Full Circle Success

Along with offering individual interventions, we provide preventative wellness programming and resources.

Full Circle Success is our model of preventative programming that takes into account multiple areas a student needs to grow and maintain. If you would like to request a Full Circle Success program click this link.
