Worried about a friend?

My friend is in crisis:

If you are worried about the wellbeing of a friend you can contact the Student Wellbeing Counsellor, who will be able to discuss about how best to support your friend, as well as how to remember your own self care.

Say Something: If you are worried about a student or if they leave you feeling concerned, it’s okay to share your concerns about them with someone else at the University in order to provide the student with the support they need. Remember that information shared with the Student Wellbeing Counsellor is confidential unless there is risk of harm.
