Help a Friend

Main content start

The first 50 words to say are...

I’m sorry that someone hurt you. How can I help? Stanford has resources to support you and help you decide what you want to do next. Would you like to speak to a confidential counselor or a staff person about your resources or reporting options?

I am here to help you.

Listen, Refer & Connect, Take Care of Yourself

Of these actions, the most important is to recognize your own limitations and get your friend connected to help.  If your friend wants to confidentially find out about their options, contact the Confidential Support Team.

Confidential support and help accessing resources, short-term emotional support, and ongoing individual counseling; free to Stanford students.
