I am wondering how to respond to a fellow student in distress
The Early Support Model was developed to encourage the members of our university community to care about one another. We are all responsible for creating a caring and supportive atmosphere on campus.Sometimes the wellbeing or behaviour of a student may give rise to concern among his or her fellow students. The Early Support Model guidelines are provided to help students respond to a fellow student in distress.
