Learn the Facts
Suicide is a major health concern. More than 40,000 people die by suicide every year.
This isn’t a fun topic, and these aren’t fun stats. (Are any stats “fun”?)
Knowing the signs, risk factors, and ways to respond, however, can help you save lives.
Get to know suicide’s impact in your community and how you can help a friend in need.
Join a Chapter
Are you passionate — or even just curious — about what it means to build a life resilient to suicide?
Consider joining a Lost & Found chapter at your college campus.
We are proud to have campus chapters at the University of South Dakota and South Dakota State University. Get in touch with our leaders.
Start a Chapter
If your school doesn’t have a Lost & Found chapter, start one! As a chapter leader, you’ll help your peers and your community develop resilience to protect against suicide.
You’ll also develop the skills you need to develop your own resilience for a lifetime.
The best part? We’ll support you every step of the way. Let’s work together.
