Are you in crisis? Please call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline
at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255)

Suicide is one of the most frightening possible outcomes of mental illness. If you or someone you know needs help, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) immediately. This is the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, a 24-hour service available to anyone in need of help. Never ignore or underestimate remarks about suicide. Take them seriously, and make certain that the person in crisis is cared for. And if you think your friend is in immediate danger, do not leave him or her alone—stay there and call 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

  • Marcy Gilstad from Active Minds at Alma College says:

    marcy_gilstad_-_alma"Active Minds appeals to the commonalities of the entire student body as we all know someone affected by mental health issues and we all want to know how to help. As a Resident Assistant on campus, I can see the impact we are making - the counseling center is no longer invisible and the term depression is no longer taboo."
