Graduate School is hard

Graduate school is hard. Sometimes it feels too hard and we feel alone. Please become familiar with suicide prevention resources and signs for yourself and your colleagues.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline:
1 800 273 2855 (English, interpreters for 150 languages)
1-888-628-9454 (Spanish)

UIUC Counseling Center guidance: If suicide is imminent, contact the Police Department immediately or Suicide Prevention Team at the Counseling Center at 217-333-3704 (TTY: 217-244-9146) during the office hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

We are a community and the health of our colleagues and friends is incredibly important.
