Services for Students
The encouragement of friends is one of the most common reasons that Pepperdine students come to the Counseling Center.
If you are worried about a friend, it is typically helpful to gently directly share your concern and remind your friend that counseling services are available. Offer to go with them, or to help them call to make the appointment.
If you would like more personalized tips on how to have this conversation, or If after an initial conversation with your friend you continue to have a concern and need more suggestions, please call to set up an appointment for a phone or in-person consultation.
If you are worried about your friend's immediate safety, and it is after hours, please call Public Safety at (310) 506-4441.
