Friend2Friend is one of Alice! Health Promotion’s skills-based training programs. This three-hour workshop is designed to help Columbia students recognize and respond to others exhibiting indicators of distress. Focused on understanding, reframing, referring, and self-care, students learn how to connect peers to resources on- and off-campus.
At the end of this training, participants will be able to:
- Define their role as a friend
- Define well-being
- 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 one's self after helping a friend
Each training session is open to a minimum of six participants and a maximum of 25. Sessions are available to all currently enrolled Columbia students. Requests for workshops or trainings for groups with fewer than six participants will be considered on a case by case basis prior to confirming the requested session.
