Peer-to-Peer Assistance

Peer-to-Peer Assistance Hotline

Middle Earth is a secure student-staffed hotline that connects students in need with peer counselors who are trained to help. Peer counselors can assess a caller’s well-being, and if necessary, link students to appropriate mental health services. Students do not need to be in crisis to use this hotline.  

The hotline is open 1 p.m. through midnight, Monday to Thursday, and Fridays at 1 p.m. until midnight on Sundays during the academic year.
