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

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 you to speak with student volunteers who are here to help, listen to, and support you. Read more about us.

We are not available until late August, after Summer break.


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