You’re not alone

Resources to help you navigate life’s challenges

Do you need help?

Even if suicidal thoughts and impulses come and go (or even go away), they signal a serious problem and getting help is the best way to get better and heal.

Remember: With time and support, it can get better.

Reach out to someone you feel you can trust.

It might help you feel less alone and overwhelmed if you talk about your feelings.

Make an appointment at the campus counseling center or with a health care provider.

Ask to be seen as soon as possible even if you feel your situation is not an emergency. Don’t put off talking about your struggles – the sooner you find support and guidance, the better.

Connect to an academic advisor or a religious/faith counselor.

Most faith and academic professionals have access to resources to get you help.

What is depression?

Depression is an illness with many causes and many forms. It is a disorder of someone’s moods or emotions; it is not an attitude that someone can “control” or “snap out of,” but it is treatable with counseling and/or medication.
