Are you feeling stressed, anxious, hopeless, isolated, or on edge? Have you noticed a friend who is feeling this way? Universities can sometimes feel big and lonely, but the fact is that many people at UNL care about your wellbeing. You don’t have to deal with stress alone.
If you are thinking about suicide, or if you are concerned about your wellbeing or the wellbeing of a friend, get help immediately. Tell an advisor, friend, or family member. RAs and RDs are trained to respond to this type of situation, as are many UNL faculty and staff members. Sharing your concern for a friend or letting others know the difficulty you’re facing is the first step. You Are Not Alone.
