Our students are important to us.  We are interested in your well-being and want to provide support as we are able. This list of resources might provide insight and advice for a variety of circumstances.  Please note that many of these resources might not be available in every country Griggs students live. We hope that you will find something here that can help, but that they will give you ideas of what to look for in terms of local support.

Carry each other's burdens and so you will fulfill the law of Christ.
