Hear to Help
Hear to Help is a new initiative at Kent State University that identifies faculty, staff and students who have completed one or more of the mental health awareness trainings offered through the More Aware project (formerly Project Aware Kent).
Modeled after the Allies/Safe Zone program that identifies individuals who are open to talking about and who are supportive of LGBTQ+ individuals and identities, individuals displaying the Hear to Help logo have a deeper understanding of mental health and substance use and can help connect individuals with services, if necessary.
Completing one or more of the mental health awareness trainings does not obligate individuals to participate in the Hear to Help initiative. However, should you decide to participate in the initiative, you can request the Hear to Help logo to display in your office, workspace or on your person. By displaying the Hear to Help logo, you are agreeing to connect individuals, who come to you for mental health related assistance, with mental health resources.
