University of Minnesota students can now get guidance and mental health support from fellow students at the help desk in Bruininks Hall.

This semester, the help desk, called Helping U, added two student employees to its staff of four and trained the group in mental health support techniques. They also learned about the various resources available on campus for students struggling with mental illness.
