Helping a friend

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.
