You can get help with your research, even when you can't come to campus!

Use the icon above to contact a reference librarian by chat or email.

If chat is not available at the moment, you'll be redirected to our "Ask-a-Librarian" form, and a librarian will respond as quickly as possible.  Please allow at least 48 hours for responses to emails!

This guide presents basic information about mental health, and strategies for developing good habits that promote health and well-being; mental illness and mental or emotional crisis situations; some "first aid" that we can do to help people who seem to be struggling or needing help, and contact info for hotlines and local organizations that provide help and support. See the tabs at left for each section of information on each of those topics.


If you are in distress or are with someone at risk right now, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or TEXT 741-741
