How to Help a Friend

Nearly everyday we ask of a friend, roommate, classmate, or peer how they are doing or feeling and sometimes we get a meaningful reply! Friends can often be the first ones to notice changes in attitudes, habits, and behaviors that may be noticeable or sometimes harmful. Here we look at: signs to watch for, ways to help, what to do when you are concerned about possible suicidal behaviors, and some helpful resources.

Remember should you have questions or concerns or would like to consult with a counselor, come by the Counseling Center on the 1st Floor of the Miles Annas Building during our Initial Consultation hours, Monday - Friday: 8:30-11:00 a.m. & 1:00-4:00 p.m. or phone the Center at 828-262-3180. Don’t feel like you have to handle it alone.
