FOR K-STATE STUDENTS AND THE K-STATE COMMUNITY
What is Ulifeline?
Ulifeline is an anonymous, Internet-based resource that provides students with a non-threatening and supportive information.
Ulifeline uniquely combines the following features and serves as studentsí one-stop online resource for mental health information.†
College students are at an age particularly vulnerable for developing mental health disorders.† Suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students.† Yet, most college students are misinformed or unaware of the signs and symptoms of depression and other emotional disorders.† Given that college students increasingly turn to the Internet for information, Ulifeline provides a safe, private, user-friendly place for students to learn more about mental health.
College students are the primary audience for Ulifeline.† They access Ulifeline to get mental health information for themselves or if they are concerned about a friend.† The site, however, is available to anyone in the college community, including faculty, coaches, and deans, parents.†
Ulifeline is a free service for colleges and universities and is supported by The Jed Foundation (www.jedfoundation.org), a nonprofit public charity whose mission is to prevent suicide among college students and improve the mental health support available on campuses nationwide.
