What’s it about
These chat sessions are open to all members of the UNH community who are concerned about a friend or someone they love who is currently experiencing or has experienced sexual violence, relationship violence and/or stalking. These chats are a great way to get support and information on how to help your friend. Sessions are available during the academic year.
The chat room is moderated by trained SHARPP Advocates and SHARPP staff. We are here to offer support, information and hope.
You may observe what is being chatted about and/or you can join the conversation.
