Online Resources
The following resources provide a variety of valuable information and support. We encourage you to take a look at these sites for help with such issues as stress, anxiety, depression, and suicide. Ulifeline is geared to the college community. On Ulifeline, you can take a 10 minute mental health self-evaluator about yourself or a friend, and based on your test results, you will receive helpful suggestions and referrals.

American Psychological Association

Everyday Health

National Institute of Mental Health

National Mental Health Information Center

U Lifeline



Local Community Mental Health Services
These agencies can provide students with psychiatric evaluations, individual, couple and family counseling; some will also prescribe medications. Appointments are necessary, though some centers have emergency numbers if you need to be seen quickly. Fees are typically based upon income offering a "sliding scale" fee. Counselors can provide you with a more extensive list of resources and/or assist you with the referral process.
