In response to state-wide concern about suicide in college students, STAR-Clinic has developed a new program for students attending a western Pennsylvania college or university, called CO-STAR (College Option, Services for Transition Age Youth at Risk).

Advance planning can reduce the impact of an in-school tragedy.

Our staff is available to any district or agency, 24 hours a day, by calling 412-864-3346.
