Ask CHR!

Trained Coaches. Trusted Advice.

Scheduling and Availability

Ask CHR is a free service for JBU students. We know that navigating relationships can be challenging. We’d like to help with that.

The quality of relationships impacts every area of our lives. Relationship problems are major sources of stress, anxiety and depression – particularly among university students. Even more, a lack of healthy relationships (social isolation) can further complicate things.

But, seeking information about relationships can be tricky. It can feel uncomfortable or threatening to ask someone for help or advice. More likely, it can just seem weird to ask other students for answers to personal questions, particularly when they’re trying to figure out relationships, too.

Ask CHR provides professionally trained coaches to help you answer questions about relationships with family, friends, roommates and professors. We’ll even talk with you about romantic or work-related questions.

Ask CHR is confidential, practical, proactive and positive! The content of your conversation will be kept private.

Ask CHR is available during the normal academic year, with the exception of breaks and holidays

Ask CHR is not and does not replace ongoing, intensive therapy. If needed, your coach will refer you to Student Counseling or the Care Clinic for more intensive services.
