Help a Friend

How to Be

If a friend comes to you with a sexual health issue or question, try to be as supportive and non-judgmental as possible. Ask if there is anything you can do to help them, including going to Student Health Services or Tuttleman Counseling for them to get additional help.

Support Yourself

Remember to stay calm and to be there for your friend. If an issue has become more than you to handle, suggest to your friend to seek additional help. You can only take as much as you can handle.
