With news yesterday of an apparent suicide on my college student's campus, it's time to share ULifeline (a great online resource for college mental health) and the Self Evaluator again. From the ULifeline website:
"The Self Evaluator was developed for ULifeline by Duke University School of Medicine and screens for thirteen of the most common mental health conditions that college students face. This screening does not provide a diagnosis, but identifies problems that could be impacting thoughts, feelings and behaviors. The screening process also provides information on these conditions and how to reach out for help."
The student taking the free screening enters the name of their school, so they will be directed to the appropriate local resources.
ULifeline is a free service for colleges and universities and is supported by The Jed Foundation - JED, a nonprofit public charity whose mission is to prevent suicide among college students and enhance mental health support on campuses nationwide.
