First Step: Reflect on how you are doing

When life becomes overwhelming, it can be hard to identify how you’re feeling and how much help you may need. You might be feeling down, struggling to take care of yourself, or falling behind in your classes and other responsibilities. Take a moment to reflect on how you’re doing. If you don’t know where to start, see which of these stages sounds like you and find resources that may help you take care of yourself at every level, from your leaves to your roots.

I need immediate help. I’m in a dangerous situation, or I might put myself into one. I have no hope that my life will improve, and I want to give up.
