Bellin College is committed to supporting and advancing the mental health and well-being of our students and breaking down stereotypes surrounding mental health. Mental health problems can affect many areas of students’ lives, reducing their quality of life, academic achievement, physical health, and negatively impacting relationships with friends and family members. These issues can also have long-term consequences for students, affecting their future employment, earning potential, and overall health. For these reasons, Bellin College believes in and is committed to fostering a safe learning environment for all students, including those students that may be suffering from some form of mental illness. The college is committed to supporting our students’ mental health through education, raising awareness, resources, programming, college personnel, etc.Some things to consider: Get regular exercise and enough sleep. Evaluate your priorities, work on managing your time, and schedule restful activities in your daily life. Students who feel in control of their lives report feeling much less stress than those who feel that circumstances control them.

988 has been designated as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (now known as the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline), and is now active across the United States.
When people call, text, or chat 988, they will be connected to trained counselors that are part of the existing Lifeline network. These trained counselors will listen, understand how their problems are affecting them, provide support, and connect them to resources if necessary.
The previous Lifeline phone number (1-800-273-8255) will always remain available to people in emotional distress or suicidal crisis.
