Listening is important when helping a friend through hard times, but sometimes they need more help than you can give.
If you are concerned for a friend, encourage them to:
- Seek support from their family
- See their doctor
- See a student counsellor
If you are still worried about them or the wellbeing of others, you can call the Monash University Malaysia campus emergency number at +603 5514 6333 or the International student support emergency number at +6019 272 5859.
Help for yourself
Supporting a friend can have an impact on you. You can talk to a student counsellor about managing your own needs while supporting your friend.
