Resources for Students

Whether you’re seeking help or looking to get involved in the cause, we’re here to support you.

Lost&Found brings together students to create healthy, resilient communities. True to our name, we’ll meet you where you are, because the difference between success and struggle isn’t all that far.

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 operate campus chapters at the University of South Dakota, South Dakota State University, University of Sioux Falls, and Dakota Wesleyan 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 member, you’ll have the opportunity to grow as a leader and leave a lasting legacy on the mental health of your peers.

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.
