GW Listens is a student-run support network. We're here if you need help or want to talk

Dot gov

Designed by students, run by students, built for students.
Mental health is just as important as physical health. In that spirit, and with the knowledge that many of us struggle in college, we decided to create a platform for student volunteers to speak with students who need to be helped, listened to, and supported. Read more about us.

We are available Sunday through Wednesday, from 9:00p to 1:00a, starting next school year on 10 September 2017.


We are here if you need someone to talk to. All of our conversations will forever be anonymous.

Call us at (202) 242-8255
