SHARE Chats are a private, non-clinical, one-on-one resource for support and validation from fellow UT Austin students who’ve been there. All of our SHARE Support Specialists are certified in Mental Health First Aid and have a semester+ of training in helping peers explore and articulate thoughts and emotions, navigate tough decisions, identify inner strengths, and connect to other resources that can support their mental health and well-being.
Please be advised that SHARE Chats are not counseling sessions, nor are our peers qualified to diagnose or treat mental health conditions. We can help peers explore other resources and options, but students specifically seeking clinical counseling services should visit the Counseling & Mental Health Center website for more information.
If you need immediate mental health support, please contact the CMHC Crisis Line at 512-471-2255.
For the time being, individual SHARE Chats with a SHARE Support Specialist can be requested via the online form below.
Who Will I Chat With?
You have the option of requesting a specific SHARE Support Specialist on the request form if you wish. Please be aware that our Specialists are also students so their individual availability may vary, but we will do our best to accommodate requests.
Learn more about each of them and their interest areas by reading their bios on our Who We Are page.
