Let’s Talk: Asking for a Friend

Published on April 27th, 2020

Asking questions about your health can be difficult if you don’t have the tools and trusted resources to navigate the current health system. Peer Health Exchange health educators are here to help! “Asking for a Friend” is a question and answer forum where young people can ask questions about their health anonymously. From tips on how to manage stress and anxiety, information about how to protect yourself from STIs, to making choices about drinking, we got you. This is a space for young people to ask questions about their health free of judgment.  

Share your question by clicking the “ask” button located at the bottom right corner of your screen, and a college student health educator will provide you with a personal response within 48 hours. We will not share any information you submit except to facilitate our response to your questions.   

For support and to see how others are coping, check out Let’s Talk: Your Health—a portal of up-to-date virtual health resources for people including: 

  • Real stories from near-peer Health Educators, sharing their experiences coping during the COVID-19. 
  • A growing library of skill building resources and practice activities, like practicing healthy communication or accessing resources.  
  • Health resources from other community partners that support young people’s mental and physical health. 

We hope to hear from you soon. *Our website is not a resource for life-threatening situations and is not monitored 24/7. If you are in crisis, please call 911.*
