Hear to Help

Hear to Help is an initiative from Kent State University that identifies individuals who have completed one or more of the mental health awareness trainings offered through the Division of Mental Health and Substance Use.

Modeled after the Safe Space Ally Training 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 discuss self-help resources and professional 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.
