Stetson alumni to lead Suicide Prevention Seminar on Saturday, March 16

Darcy and Paul Granello, Stetson alumni and currently professors at The Ohio State University, will return to campus on Saturday, March 16, for a seminar entitled, “Suicide Prevention Assessment & Intervention — Practical Strategies for Mental Health Professionals,” presented by the Stetson Department of Counselor Education.

The seminar is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Stetson Room in the CUB, and is free for Stetson Counseling and Psychology students, faculty and alumni. To register, email or call ext. 8992.

For other mental health professionals, the cost is $30 for the morning session or $55 for the full day. They can visit here for more information and to register.

Darcy, Ph.D., is a professor and program Chair of Counselor Education at The Ohio State University, and project director of the OSU Suicide Prevention Program – the largest campus suicide prevention program in the U.S.

Her husband, Paul, Ph.D., is associate professor of Counselor Education at The Ohio State University.

The couple’s lives changed, Darcy says in a video on her website,, when “in 1999 we lost my husband’s brother to suicide. When that happened, we did what a lot of people do — we became activists around suicide. We travel all over the world presenting our suicide program.”
