  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Rumors about Link unfounded

Those calling to recieve help from one of the twenty-four hour emergency counselors need not worry. According to one Link coordinator, the facility is staffed just fine and is in no danger of not being able to help those in need. Despite rumors circulating, Julie Moebis said that the Link is not short-staffed.

“At this current time we have 18 volunteers that are actively working. Usually between University and community members [we find volunteers],” Moebis said.

By attending fairs on-campus and speaking at clubs, volunteers blend activities at the Link with University activities. While the Link has lost a couple workers — with one unavailable during summer hours and the other moving away–the Link now has a full staff. Moebis said the Link is ready to take calls and face some big needs in the community if it has to.

“We have summer hours and a summer training class. We are always recruiting for volunteers,” Moebis said.

Even under the event of becoming short staffed, Moebis said the Link would continue operations.

“I don’t think we would discontinue services we are part of a bigger mental health board,” Moebis said.

Moebis did say that the 24-hour hotline is always thinking of creative ways to staff. Whether that be through volunteer drives, sign-up booths at the Student Union; the Link will work together with Behavioral Connections to provide quality help to those in need.

“We’re always in need of volunteers cause that’s what we do,” Moebis said.
