Get Help

Students, faculty and staff at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign have many resources available to them, but where to start can sometimes seem confusing. Identifying what you need and for whom can be a logical first step in addressing a mental health issue. 

Resources are available to help you make an appointment, how to help a friend, student or co-worker, or to help you identify what you need at this time. 

Help is available any time of day. If you would like to speak to someone immediately, please call one of the following numbers.
