At times, you may become concerned about a fellow student’s well-being and wonder how you might help your friend. You may encounter such fellow students either as a peer or as a student leader. It is OK to encourage your friend to seek counseling services, or you may encourage your friend to utilize our online resources by going here. If you would like some additional help in assisting your fellow student, our professional staff can be available to you for consultation by calling our office at 219.464.5002 and asking to speak to a therapist. If someone is not available at the moment, we will take your information and the next available therapist will contact you. We are happy to offer you support and suggestions to you as you try to help another student get the help they may need.
If you are concerned about the immediate safety of your fellow student (e.g., threatened or attempted suicide), or you believe the student is of immediate threat to you or others, please call 911 for help.
We also offer consultation services to faculty and staff members as well as to parents and loved ones. Please see the respective tabs on the left, to learn more about how we may be able to help you support your student.
