DETROIT – In a proactive move towards prioritizing mental health, Central Michigan University College of Medicine, VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System, the School of Medicine at Wayne State University, and University of Detroit Mercy School of Law have adopted the “Early Alert” text system.

Developed by Dr. Eran Magen, a seasoned professional with a Ph.D. in psychology from Stanford University, the system aims to reduce suicidal ideation and provide crucial support to groups in high-stress environments.

The Early Alert system is designed to cater to the specific needs of environments such as medical and law schools, clinics, veterans programs, and first responders. By identifying users in crisis, the system promptly connects them with nearby mental health professionals, fostering a swift and supportive response.
