What is an Advocate?
The role of a S.A.G.E. Center advocate is not to provide intensive therapy, but to provide support and understanding for each individual experience. We can provide a listening ear, a supportive voice and a conduit to other resources and services both on campus and in your community.
Advocates can help individuals:
- Express their views and concerns
- Access information and services
- Defend and promote their rights and responsibilities
- Explore options and choices
If you would like to schedule a time to meet with an advocate please call 603-535-2387 or email Delilah Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
