Tip of the Week: Learn More about ULifeline
ULifeline is an online resource for college students struggling with mental health issues. Watching a friend struggle emotionally or hurt themselves by abusing drugs and/or alcohol, cutting, or behaving recklessly can be stressful. It’s hard to know what to say or do. But, as a friend, you may notice signs of a problem that others don’t see. Since unaddressed emotional health issues can lead to serious consequences such as addiction, dangerous behaviors, and thoughts of suicide, it’s important that you don’t ignore these signs. Trust your instincts if you have a gut feeling that something is not right with your friend, you should act on it.
Be the difference for a friend by learning the signs of a problem and how to help.
