Support Hotline for Students: Lean On Me

Lean On Me is an online community support hotline where CMU students can text in and talk anonymously to trained supporters, who are also CMU students. While we acknowledge that talking with a licensed therapist is very valuable for many students, we also recognize that there is immense value in our community supporting each other day-to-day, and our hope is that this service can do a great amount of good for students who just want a peer to talk to. Students can text in to the hotline number at (412) 530-4700 or send a message on Instagram @leanonme.cmu!
