    Approximately 1 in 10 college students consider suicide each year. That means that nine out of ten students have the opportunity to help that one who is struggling. Inspired by this statistic, Nine out of Ten is an ambassador program that empowers college students to be a hopeful voice for suicide prevention and promote a mental health movement on campus. Nine out of Ten student ambassadors engage in year-round advocacy and awareness activities to spread the message of Nine out of Ten: Be aware, speak up, reach out, and #helpsomeone
