Need help now?
Call 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
Have you been feeling stressed, anxious, sad, hopeless, irritable or unfocused? Have you noticed a friend who might be feeling this way?
It’s “OK” to answer “yes” if that’s the case. These feelings could be a normal part of the college experience, but they could also be something that requires help to overcome. If you were in physical pain, you’d get it checked out. Mental health is just as important.
Whether you are searching for tips to improve your emotional health, worried about a potential mental health problem, looking to help a friend or interested in becoming an advocate, a great first step is to visit one of our online resources for college students:
The Jed Foundation's Half of Us campaign with mtvU uses stories of students and high-profile artists to increase awareness about mental health problems and the importance of getting help. Visit halfofus.com to view video stories, learn more about emotional disorders, support others by becoming an advocate and download the My Mood Ring application for your Facebook page.
ULifeline is an anonymous online resource to learn more about your thoughts and feelings, and to reach out for help if necessary. Visit ULifeline.org to take a confidential screening, to research mental health conditions or to locate resources on your campus.
If you or someone you know needs help immediately, please contact your campus couseling center, call 9-1-1 or dial The National Suicide Prevention LIfeline at 1-800-273 TALK.
The 2014 Jerry Greenspan Student Voice of Mental Health Award is now accepting applications! The honoree will receive $2,000 and a trip to NYC for The Jed Foundation's gala.
