The OnLife team visited the beautiful campus of UCLA to talk to students and inform them about suicide prevention and resources. We were at UCLA from the morning till late afternoon close by to the Bruin Bear near the bookstore on campus. We had a great time and the students came by to share their stories and learn more about what we do and how they can help. Thanks to everyone involved.

As a part of OnLife’s continuing college tour, we have made our way south to the University of Tennessee! OnLife spent the afternoon handing flyers out as well as talking to faculty and students about the importance of suicide prevention and awareness. OnLife was well-received there and the people we have spoke to said we were welcome to come back anytime in the future.
