Mental Health Research and Suicide Prevention Initiative


Please join Mark and Kathleen Walker in making a gift to impact mental health and suicide prevention at The University of Texas at Austin and institutions across the state of Texas. The Mental Health Research and Suicide Prevention Initiative will directly contribute to life-saving resources, research, programs, and training throughout the UT System. This initiative is being administered by the Counseling and Mental Health Center at The University of Texas at Austin. Gifts to this initiative are tax-deductible and can be pledged over five years.

A Life-Saving Video

Senate Bill 1624, conceived of my Mark and Kathleen Walker, requires incoming students at Texas institutions of higher education to receive information on mental health and suicide prevention services. UT Austin is leading a state-wide initiative to create videos that provide life-saving resources to incoming students and can be used by any university in Texas.

24-hour Crisis Counseling Access

A gift to support the crisis line will continue to give students access to a counselor 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This critical resource serves every school in the UT System.

Prevention Research

Supporting a postdoctoral researcher at UT Austin will allow for the collection of state and national data, assessment, and analytics in order to inform best practices in mental health intervention and suicide prevention. Research will be coordinated with the National Research Consortium of Counseling Centers in Higher Education.

Professional Training

Facilitates 14 UT System Counseling Center Directors’ attendance to an annual conference to discuss legislative issues, funding needs, best practices and professional development.
