Temple University | Volunteers Wanted for a Research Study

We are doing a research study to learn more about how we can support students with mental health issues to help them succeed in school.

Students who enroll in the study may have a chance to work with someone who will help them to set goals related to their education, relationships, mental health and campus life, and receive encouragement and support to achieve their goals. All study communication will take place electronically (e.g. telephone, email, text message, Skype). 

If you are interested in participating in this study, you may contact research staff at 215-204-4062 or, or visit this website:
