The Office of Counseling Services at High Point University strongly recommends that you visit ULifeline, an excellent resource on mental and emotional health for college students.
ULifeline is an anonymous, confidential, online resource center, where college students can be comfortable searching for the information they need and want regarding emotional health. Utilize ULifeline’s anonymous Self-Evaluator to learn more about the mental health symptoms that may be affecting you or someone you care about.
In addition, the following websites have been provided to assist students, faculty, and staff with questions and information concerning clinical issues commonly seen in college age students. This information is not a substitute for counseling when there is a concern that you or someone you know may be experiencing symptoms of distress. These links are, however, provided to educate and heighten awareness and to provide self-help resources. Please, contact the counseling office at (336) 888-6352 if you have any questions or need assistance.
