Suicide and Self Harm

If you or someone you know are experiencing any of the following:

  • Thinking about ending your life
  • Thinking about or engaging in self-harming behaviors
  • Having difficulty taking care of your basic needs
  • Becoming preoccupied with death, dying, or violence
  • Saying goodbye to people as if they won’t be seen again
  • Feeling trapped or hopeless

This could be an indicator that you may need/want someone to talk to.  You are not alone.  Many students who struggle with these symptoms do not know where to turn.  If you are having suicidal thoughts or using self-harm (cutting, pulling out hair, burning, picking, etc.) as a form of punishment, a way to regulate your emotions or cope with your pain, there are other options.   There is help available.

If you or someone you know are in immediate danger of suicide, CALL 9-1-1 immediately.
