Suicide Prevention & General Mental and Physical Health
As a part of Wyoming's Youth Suicide Prevention campaign, check out the revamped website with the goal to get young adults to talk about topics like depression, mental illness and suicide.

The site, What A Difference a Friend Makes,  is for people living with mental illness—and their friends. You'll find tools to help in the recovery process, and you can also learn about the different kinds of mental illnesses, read real-life stories about support and recovery, and interact with the video to see how friends can make all the difference.
 
The site, HealthLine, is a great resource that can provide information on a variety of mental and physical;health-related disorders and issues.

e-CHUG Alcohol Awareness Assessment

e-CHUG is an electronic assessment of your personal drinking profile that is totally confidential. In about 30 minutes, e-CHUG can help you to assess your levels of intoxication and personal risk factors, and will show you how your drinking habits compare to other college students.
e-CHUG can also help you determine your readiness to change and will identify resources for obtaining assistance. If you need verification of your use of e-CHUG, be sure to print the Certificate of Completion when you have completed the program.

Addictions Treatment
The Counseling and Career Services Center does not provide any treatment of alcohol and/or drug issues, but the counselor is available to provide psycho-educational materials for prevention and intervention services, as needed.  If treatment appears to be the student's need, referral will be made to an outside source.  If you would like to explore treatment options, speak with the counselor or take a look at Treatment4Addiction.com, which may be able to help.
Depression
The Counseling and Career Services Center provides assistance for depression and related issues that are effecting academic performance.  Contact the counselor by e-mail or call at 855-2175 to set up an appointment, or call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) 24 hours a day for free, professional help.

The Counseling and Career Services staff work closely with the Disability Services staff to provide assistance for students with identified disabilities to transition from high school to college.  Take a look at Going to College for some ideas or contact the Disability Services Coordinator at (307)855-2011, or 800-735-8418, ext 2011.
