The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Mental Health Services
(CMHS), is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2018 Garrett Lee Smith (GLS) Campus Suicide Prevention grant
program. The purpose of this program is to develop a comprehensive, collaborative, well-coordinated, and evidencebased
approach to: (1) enhance mental health services for all college students, including those at risk for suicide,
depression, serious mental illness, and/or substance use disorders that can lead to school failure; (2) prevent mental
and substance use disorders; (3) promote help-seeking behavior and reduce negative public attitudes; and (4) improve
the identification and treatment of at-risk college students so they can successfully complete their studies. It is expected
that this program will reduce the adverse consequences of serious mental illness and substance use disorders, including
suicidal behavior, substance-related injuries, and school failure. Funding Opportunity Title: GLS Campus Suicide
