Who We Are

Founded in 1977, 8-to-8 is a student-run, confidential, and anonymous listening service. Either over the phone or in an online chat, we provide the members of the Wesleyan community an outlet where they can work through what's on their minds. In using a ‘non-directive’ approach, our service members seek to engage callers during the conversation using thoughtful questions to help sort through and clarify 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 are also happy to provide links, phone numbers, email addresses, references and any other information that could help you further.
