ULifeline is an anonymous, confidential, online resource center, where college students can be comfortable searching for the information they need and want regarding mental health and suicide prevention. ULifeline is available where college students seek information the most – at their fingertips on the Internet.
ULifeline is a program of The Jed Foundation, the nation’s leading organization working to prevent suicide and improve the mental health of college students, and is overseen by an expert board of mental health professionals.
Since its inception, ULifeline and The Jed Foundation have reached millions of parents, students, administrators, and, most importantly, those who have suffered in silence. We will continue to be vigilant in improving ULifeline.org and its ability to educate, raise awareness, and most importantly reduce the stigma associated with mental health seeking on a college campus, which ultimately, we believe, will help those truly in need.
Have you or a friend been feeling stressed, anxious, sad, hopeless, irritable or unfocused? It’s “OK” to answer “yes” if that’s the case. These feelings could be a normal part of the college experience, but they could also be something that requires help to overcome. If you were in physical pain, you’d get it checked out. Mental health is just as important. Reach out for support or encourage a friend to ask for help. Through Half of Us, mtvU and The Jed Foundation want to initiate a public dialogue to raise awareness about the prevalence of mental health issues on campus and connect students to the appropriate resources to get help. In planning for the campaign, mtvU conducted extensive research on how stress and depression are affecting college students nationwide.
