How You Can Recognize a Fellow Student in Distress

Is one of your friends at-risk? Stress can have a negative impact on a student's health and academic performance. LGBTQ students may be facing additional challenges. Students who are Veterans may be facing challenges as they adjust to college life.

 

Here at Los Angeles Valley College we have adopted a suite of online training simulations that will assist you to better identify, support, and refer At-Risk, LGTBQ and Veterans students to support services on campus. You can help a friend who is struggling and create a more supportive and inclusive campus for all.
