Abstract: This project aimed to spread awareness about mental health and suicide prevention through the on-campus “Chalk&Walk for Suicide Prevention and Awareness” event. This project was inspired by existing literature on the elements of an effective suicide prevention program. This event occurred on March 30th, 2022, and received positive feedback from participants. This paper expands on the research that inspired this project, reviews the components of the project planning, includes an analysis of the post-event survey approved by the UNCP IRB, contains a discussion about the overall event, and ends with a short conclusion. Images of the event and event materials are included after the conclusion in the Appendix.
