Mental Health

About

Welcome! Sometimes there are days that seem frustrating, sad, or simply unbearable. We’ve provided some resources that might help you, or provide a little bit of comfort.

If this is an emergency, for example harm to self or harm to others, do not wait. Call 911. If you need adult assistance right now for other issues such as homelessness or depression, contact the St. Louis Youth Connection Helpline at 314-819-8802.

[Please note that we are not in any way professional psychologists, but just fellow students who understand that life can be stressful.]
