This session is specifically for undergraduate Columbia students (CC, SEAS, GS).
Friend2Friend is a three-hour skills-based training designed to help students effectively recognize and respond to others exhibiting indicators of distress.

At the end of this training, participants will be able to:
Define their role as a friend
List at least three factors that can help someone maintain positive well-being
List at least three reasons why students may choose not to get help
List at least three possible signs of distress
Describe how to refer a friend to a resource
Identify ways to care for oneself after helping a friend
