You are among students from colleges and universities around the country being invited to participate in a text-message survey about suicide. Students who complete the survey will receive a $5 Amazon gift code to their mobile phones.
If you are interested in participating in the survey, click the link below to provide consent to be contacted and to enter your mobile phone number. If you provide your number and consent, you may be contacted in the near future to participate in a short text message-based survey (not all students will be contacted). Once you receive the initial text message you have a short time to complete the survey. Your regular message and data rates will apply for the messages you receive. Your contact information and survey responses are private.
If you have questions about participating in the survey, contact the survey team at ICF International by email at SMSS@icfi.com. For questions about your school’s suicide prevention program, please contact Sarah Menefee (sarah.menefee at wm.edu).
If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide or would like to speak with counselor, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, 24/7.
