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. Residence assistants, residence directors, faculty and staff are trained to respond to this type of situation. Sharing your concern for a friend or letting others know the difficulty you’re facing is the first step. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Counseling and Psychological Services can help.

If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, call 402.472.7450. Follow the prompts for after-hours assistance. Help is available 24/7.

Have you experienced a personal, psychological or physical trauma recently? Has your level of distress increased significantly? Has someone asked you to visit CAPS or another mental health resource? Are you having thoughts or have you made a plan to hurt yourself or others? Has a friend, intimate partner or family member hurt you physically or emotionally?

For non-crisis matters, schedule an appointment with Counseling and Psychological Services by calling 402.472.7450 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To learn how you can help prevent suicide, attend REACH© Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Training available to students, staff and faculty.
