Pop-Up Library - Suicide Prevention


Florida Atlantic University Library's Suicide Prevention book display is designed to help students find helpful books that they may not know about. We have carefully curated a selection of titles that can provide students with vital information to help themselves, their peers or their family. 

FAU Assistance: Owls Care

The mission of Owls Care Health Promotion is to empower students to be healthy, responsible and successful.

We support the mission of Florida Atlantic University by recognizing that healthy individuals and caring communities are essential to quality research, scholarship, creative activity, teaching, and active engagement.

We recognize the interdependent nature of health and systems and, therefore, apply a socio-ecological approach to our practice. We enable students to reach their full potential by helping them care for themselves, each other, and their university community. Our efforts foster an environment that is welcoming, safe, and accessible to all students.

Our mission is accomplished through the delivery of programs and services that are theory-based, evidence-informed, innovative, and student-centered.
