How to Help a Friend  

Friends are often the first people you turn to when you have a problem or are worried about something. Our friends are also usually the first people who notice when something is off or out of the ordinary in our lives. This virtual workshop is here to help you with skills and strategies to help notice when a friend might need help and how you can have a supportive conversation. 

This is a follow-up, synchronous workshop for anyone who has completed the How to Help a Friend Canvas module. You must complete the Canvas course before participating in the virtual workshop.
