Sigma Chi is a brotherhood established in 1855 that focuses on friendship, justice, and learning within the fraternity and in the community at large. The organization and its members offer numerous outreach programs, one of which is the Sigma Chi Lifeline.

Sigma Chi Lifeline provides support and resources to individuals struggling with mental health issues and substance abuse. Through the Lifeline, individuals in need can receive immediate counseling to avoid potentially relapsing into drug abuse or committing suicide. They can call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or text “START” to 741-741.

In addition, Sigma Chi Lifeline provides resources on mental and physical wellness, believing that establishing good wellness habits, such as sleep, exercise, and nutrition, can prevent the onset of mental and physical health issues.
