It’s easy to procrastinate getting help, but reaching out for support is the first step to feeling better. Most campuses offer confidential counseling services or can help connect you with resources in your community. Find resources on your campus or in your community by clicking the “resources” tab. Just talking about what’s going on can help you feel better, so take that first step by reaching out for help or opening up to a friend or family member.

If you or someone you know are abusing drugs or alcohol to cope with emotional issues, or are having thoughts about suicide, it’s important to speak up immediately. Call 1-800-273-TALK to have a confidential conversation with a counselor or go to this link: http://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/GetHelp/LifelineChat.aspx to chat online with someone about ways to help yourself or a friend. Remember, there are ways to feel better, but you have to tell someone what you’re going through.
