Friendships can be a great source of strength and support. So it can be especially difficult to watch those you care about struggle with mental illness, addiction, or engage in other harmful behaviors. It can be difficult to know when or how to intervene. But we know that intervention is critical to combatting more serious problems later on. We can do something! The counseling center is here to help and will be happy to offer guidance and support. Don’t feel like you have to handle it alone – ULifeline, a project of the JED Foundation, has great resources on how to help your friend in distress.
