Self-Help for Mental Health Concerns and Issues




We encourage students to learn more about the common mental health topics listed above. In addition, the following websites provide screening tools and informational resources for a variety of mental health concerns:

ULifeline Self Evaluator

The Self Evaluator was developed for ULifeline by Duke University School of Medicine and screens for the most common mental health conditions that college students face. This screening does not provide a diagnosis; rather, it identifies problems that could be impacting your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The screening process also provides information about these conditions and how to reach out for help. 

Mental Health America

Mental Health America provides a collection of free, confidential, anonymous, and validated screening tools to help you understand and learn more about your mental health. The platform is interactive and dynamic.

Half of Us

Half of Us is an award-winning program from JED & MTV featuring a library of free-for-use videos, including PSAs and celebrities and students talking about their personal experiences with mental health and substance use. This platform can help you feel less alone and empowered to reach out for help.

Set to Go

Set to Go guides students and families through the social, emotional, and mental health challenges related to transitioning from high school to college and adulthood.
