Everyone has a role to play in creating a community that cares about mental health and one another.

Listening, supporting, and encouraging your friends can really make a difference in their life. Sometimes you might hesitate to bring up a concern because you are afraid you will upset your friend, hurt your friendship, or not be helpful, but most of the time your friend will be grateful to know that someone cared enough to reach out and take a risk. To learn more about how you can support other students to help create a community that cares, check out this page on the Counseling Center’s website. You can also request a Be There training for your group or organization by reaching out to request an outreach presentation.
