Depression is a common and serious issue that may be tough to talk about. College students can be especially vulnerable due to changing life patterns, school and work schedules, study needs, relationship and family issues, and unsteady social networks. Students can feel unbalanced and without hope. That is where the Depression Reduction Achieving Wellness (DRAW) program can assist.
The DRAW program provides free, short-term counseling sessions for college students in Tulare and Kings Counties in California. If you, or someone you know, could benefit from this program (or if you need someone to talk to), contact your school counselor, counseling center, or student health service. The Tulare/Kings County Warmline can be reached for non-emergency counseling situations at 1-977-306-2413.
If you or someone you know is in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-272-TALK (1-800-273-8255) to speak to a counselor.
