Certain groups of students need more support than others in and out of college. These groups include students undergoing psychological distress, Veterans on campus, and students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer/questioning (LGBTQ). Some students may turn to a friend first; and that friend may be you. When a friend turns to you, it is because they trust and respect you. Other times, before a friend comes to you for help, you may sense that they need your support. You can suggest supportive services such as Psychological Services, located in the Student Services Building, 2nd Floor, Room SS-230.
Below, you will find links to three different online trainings that can help you educate yourself on how to help students whether they are Veterans on campus, a member of the LGBTQ community, or a student in distress. These trainings will help you learn to identify symptoms of distress, understand the unique challenges faced by Veterans on campus, and create a supportive environment for your LGBTQ peers.
Once you have educated yourself, you can help your friends by being knowledgeable about stress-related/stress-inducing factors, and understanding how to help them find supportive services on campus and in the community.
