  • "Friends for Survival" Suicide Loss Helpline for those who are grieving

 

 

  • Develop a support network of friends. Campus and extracurricular activities such as intramurals at the Student Recreation Center, joining a student club or attending campus events is a great way to meet new people.
  • If you have concerns about your study habits, ability to take tests or how to manage coursework, talk to a counselor, find academic assistance or talk with your advisor.
  • Stay active. Regular physical activity can improve your mood, relieve depression and increase feelings of well-being. Visit Campus Recreation, offering group fitness classes and personal training, to help you get started.
  • Visit the Vandal Health Clinic, and discuss concerns with a health professional. If the health professional advises treatment, follow instructions. Watch for side effects, and attend follow-up appointments to assess improvement.
  • If you or someone you know is considering suicide, contact the Counseling & Testing Center or the Vandal Health Clinic. If you aren't comfortable talking to someone on campus, call the suicide hotline at 800-273-8255.
