Helping a Friend in Distress

Help a friend who is in struggling

Have you ever had a friend who was struggling? Have you wanted to talk to a fellow student dealing with a problem, but weren't sure how? Most college students say they would turn to their friends for support during times of stress, overwhelming anxiety, or depression; however, for many college students, these are not easy topics to discuss.

At-Risk for College Students is a 30 minute, interactive, online training simulation designed to provide you with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to identify fellow students in distress, approach them about the issues you've noticed, and refer them for help, if necessary.
