Our Depression Reduction Achieving Wellness (DRAW) program is aimed at reducing the amount of depression and suicide risk in students age 18 and older in Tulare County. With activities in the natural setting of college campuses and vocational schools that began in September 2013, DRAW is funded by the Tulare County Suicide Prevention Task Force with Mental Health Services Act (Proposition 63) Prevention and Early Intervention funds.
