The new project is known as Project S.T.E.P.S. (Survival Through Education Prevention and Services).

Project S.T.E.P.S. places emphasis on dismissing myths and stigma associated with mental health, depression and suicide within the African American community and other communities of color. Project S.T.E.P.S. targets entering freshmen, veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans-Gender and Questioning (LGBTQ) community. The programs and services are facilitated through a system of care emphasizing person-centered, and strengths-based approach to self harm.
