MCC Speech Com: Mental Health and Crisis Com.

**Note: SPE 330 Students, this post is not for your class. See you 4/12.**

Did you know? MCC is connected with ulifeline.org, a non-profit organization that provides information on a variety of topics including depression and suicide prevention.  Click on the ULifeline link and then proceed to the student section. Once you’ve indicated which school you’re from you can access a variety of topics. (You can still access information without entering your school’s information.)

ULifeline contacts fact sheets and information on how you can help your peers or yourself, identify warning signs, and myths about suicide. There are also evaluation tools for you to access. ULifeline is anonymous and confidential.
