Help Someone Else

It can be scary when a friend or loved one is thinking about suicide. Let us help. If someone you know has any warning signs we encourage you to call the Suicide and Crisis Prevention Lifeline – call or text 988 – to find what resources are available in your area. Your call is routed to the Lifeline center closest to your area code. The local crisis center may have resources such as counseling or in-patient treatment centers for your friend or family member. Most importantly, please encourage them to call the Lifeline.

TalkCampus is Here!

Student life can be incredibly tough for anybody, it can feel lonely, overwhelming and sometimes it just feels like we are helpless.

And let’s admit it, that can be pretty tough to say out loud. TalkCampus is here for everyone and anyone who just needs someone to talk to. Who just needs someone to listen. Because hey, we all do.

We’re here for the moments when you just need a friend, no matter where they are. We’re here when you’re looking for someone who just understands what you’re going through (because someone always does). Sure, life is full of highs and lows. But it’s full of highs and lows for each and every one of us so why do we always try to go it alone? At TalkCampus we’ve created a place where we can all work through life together, because everything is better together. Everything. Peanut butter and jelly have proven this for like, at LEAST eight decades now.

So get on TalkCampus and talk to students going through the exact same struggles you are all around the world any time of day or night. We know that sometimes it’s sort of hard to talk about certain things with family, or even friends. This is a safe place where you can talk anonymously about anything; mental health, depression, self-harm, eating disorders, a bad break-up or a relationship, stress and studies…it doesn’t matter. If you want to talk about it, someone else does too. No judgements. No bullying, just people who get you.
