WHO WE ARE:
ECHO is a peer counseling group that addresses concerns surrounding eating, body image, and self-esteem.
ECHO staffers are trained undergraduates who provide non-judgmental and non- directive support to both those dealing with their own issues and those who are concerned about a friend, roommate, significant other or family member. ECHO is a resource for anyone seeking referrals, support, or just someone to talk to, and provides its services through drop-in hours and hotline. ECHO also plans and produces outreach events to increase community awareness and foster an understanding campus environment.
ECHO is here to respond to your concerns while respecting your privacy. when you call ECHO, you reach a staff of peer counselors who are trained to listen and provide resources based upon your needs. we maintain anonymity and confidentiality to ensure that your concerns always come first.
anonymous means that any ECHO staffer you talk to won’t ask for your name or reveal your name if you choose to share it.
confidential means that nothing you say goes beyond ECHO unless your concern involves the threat of physical harm to yourself or someone else.
WHY TO CALL US:
No call is too trivial or unimportant. if something is bothering you, that is reason enough to call ECHO. If you are not sure about what a friend is going through, how to approach an initial conversation with someone, or whether your experience is serious “enough,” please call.
