Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues.
September is Suicide Prevention Month — a time to raise awareness and discuss this highly stigmatized topic. In addition to shifting public perception, we use this month to spread hope and vital information to people affected by suicide. Our goal is ensuring that individuals, friends and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention and to seek help.
The Mental Health & Wellness Center on campus offers many resources and will be hosting events throughout the month of September to help spread awareness and address this issue. We encourage students to contact the Mental Health & Wellness Center if they ever feel a need to talk.

Purpose & Commitment
Feather River College is committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusivity in all forms. The college embraces individual uniqueness, fosters a culture of inclusion, and supports the institutional benefits of diversity. As Golden Eagles, we rise above any form of social injustice and strive towards a welcoming and inclusive environment both on campus and in personal lives. FRC values inclusion as an essential element of our public service mission.

Membership: Chief Student Services Officer (Chair); Director of Human Resources/EEO; Academic Senate Faculty (2); Classified Senate Representatives (2); Associated Students Representative (1).
The centerpiece of the Feather River College mission requires the removal of barriers to student success and the active pursuit of an equity-minded campus of trust, compassion, open-mindedness, and culture of inclusivity. We acknowledge the systemic barriers that have historically excluded and prevented success for students from diverse, disenfranchised, and vulnerable populations and are committed to addressing the inequities that contribute to their success.
FRC pledges to build an equity framework where the lived experiences of our most marginalized student groups inform our institutional practices and processes.
Acknowledging and eliminating equity gaps includes challenging explicit and implicit biases and perceptions. This will occur through self-reflection and at times, difficult conversations. Becoming equity-minded means all of us being more conscious and aware of the systemic barriers to student success, and creating a more inclusive and culturally affirming institution and learning environment. An equity-minded campus means equipping all FRC employees with the knowledge, skills and abilities to discuss the barriers on our campus that affect student success and student lives.
Our equity pledge is to celebrate diversity, instill hope, and empower our students to transform their lives and their communities.
