New Grad Resources Press Release:
Grad Resources Goes Independent for Greater Impact

Recent studies have shown that the pressures of academic performance, finances, advisor relationships and other factors create intense anxiety for many graduate students, bringing some to a dangerous point of crisis.

That's why we've come up with the National Graduate Student Crisis Line -- a toll-free, 24-hour hotline staffed by highly trained phone counselors who understand the unique issues faced by grad students like you.

The crisis line has recently moved to KBHC to allow campuses to promote this valuable service without a faith-based organization attachment.

If you are a grad student in crisis, please call the Crisis Line right away...1-800-GRAD-HLP.

Please Don't Jump

This postcard says:

I have lived in San Francisco since I was young. I am illegal. I am not wanted here. I don't belong anywhere. This summer I plan to jump off the Golden Gate.
