“HelpLine is by far my favorite organization at Texas A&M. I feel like I know the student body better as a whole through HelpLine. It has opened my eyes to many of the issues we all struggle with. I feel like I’ve learned more about myself and how to be there for someone else in need. I’ve learned that listening is an incredibly valuable gift you can offer someone else, and I love being part of an organization that wants everyone to feel heard. HelpLine has also helped me take care of my own mental health. As HelpLiners, we can’t help someone else unless we are able to take care of ourselves.”

“Being a part of HelpLine has made me a better leader by showing me different perspectives that I wouldn’t have otherwise encountered. It has improved my communication skills, taught me more about the resources available on campus, and has made me a better listener. Most important, the opportunity to serve others has made me a more caring person.”

“This organization gives me the opportunity to be a listening ear, not only for my fellow students, but for anyone who needs someone to talk to. Joining this organization and being surrounded by fellow peers who want to help others is an amazing experience. There is no other feeling like the satisfaction of knowing you have helped someone, even if you do not know them.”
