Who We Are:
Founded in 1977, 8-to-8 is a student-run, confidential and anonymous listening service. Either by phone, or in an online chat, we provide the Wesleyan community with non-directive listening and useful information to help them deal with their problems. By ‘non-directive’, we mean that rather than give direct advice, our approach is to guide callers during the conversation through a series of questions that can help sort through and gain clarity about issues and feelings. Our mission is simply to provide a safe space to talk — whether you need help with a specific problem or just feel like you need someone to listen. We’re also happy to provide all kinds of links, phone numbers, email addresses, references and any other kind of information that could help you further.
