Suicide Prevention

You Are Not Alone

Are you feeling stressed, anxious, hopeless, isolated or on edge? Have you noticed a friend who is feeling this way? Universities can sometimes feel big and lonely, but the fact is that many people at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln care about your well-being. You don’t have to deal with stress alone!

If you are thinking about suicide or if you are concerned about your wellbeing or the wellbeing of a friend, get help immediately. Tell an advisor, friend or family member. RAs and RDs are trained to respond to this type of situation as are many faculty and staff members. Sharing your concern for a friend or letting others know the difficulty you’re facing is the first step. You Are Not Alone
