Peer-to-Peer Mental Health Help

Pay it
Forward

25 simbi value - Virtual OK

Feel like you need to vent or talk to someone? Let me know! I can offer peer mental health counseling and advice, in sessions up to an hour long over Skype or another online service. I am not a licensed mental health professional, but as someone that struggles with mental illness myself, I hope that I might be able to provide some comfort, advice, or assurance for those in need of it. I cannot diagnose you or treat your illness. If you are experiencing a crisis, I urge you to call your local authorities.

If you're reading this, and are considering it, then let me say this: I want to help you. I have been in your position before myself, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. I want to do whatever I can to help you feel better. No one deserves to struggle with something like mental illness. But it doesn't have to be something that we bear alone.

Training & Qualifications


I work as a Peer Champlain at the Wellness Center on my college campus. My job is to talk to students and offer them advice, refer them to local services, and generally be there for them. Aside from that, I often serve as something of a guidance counselor for friends and acquaintances!

Availability & Preferences


Tuesdays, Thursdays, and during the weekend.

Trading Preference: Pay it forward – pass on the good deed!

My personal belief is that the world would be just that much better if more people just did things for others out of kindness. Additionally, the exchange of services seems like a great model!

Coping With a Trump Presidency

About Leah Mikaelian

My name is Leah. I'm twenty years old, I'm LGBT+, I'm mentally ill, and I'm a student attending a small liberal arts college in Massachusetts. My concentration is in molecular biology- specifically co...ncerning origin and evolution of early life. I'm hoping that my education will take me down a path that will ultimately lead me to becoming one of the first astronauts to step onto the surface of Mars. Of course, what I study and what I want to do with my education are a more of a conversation than a statement! If you want to know more, feel free to ask. I have little work experience. But, don't write me off as one of those 'lazy jobless millennials' just yet. Despite my lack of professional experience, I devote much of my time to developing professional skills, doing freelance work, and volunteering on my college campus. It's not just to bolster a résumé, either! Some skills and experiences are just worth having, I think. So, what are my skills? I think it's worth mentioning that I've got the millennial superpower: the ability to pick up on anything pretty quickly. If we don't know how to do something, give us twenty minutes and Google and we'll figure it out! Research is mostly how I've built up my other skills, too- a wide array from writing, color theory, musical arrangement and composition, photomanipulation, the French language. If I want to do something, I learn how to do it! I'm hoping to both offer what help that I can to people, as well as broaden my horizons by meeting new folks, having new experiences, and learning new things. show more
