Suicide Prevention Information

It is the goal of Thomas Edison State University to provide important information to foster the well-being of our students and alumni. The nature of our online learning format does not always allow us the opportunity to meet with students in a face-to-face setting, but we strive to ensure our students have important mental health information and resources available to them.

If you or someone you know is in crisis or in need of urgent care, contact the resources below, which are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week:

NJ Hopeline (Suicide Prevention)
(855) 654-6735

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