Students participate in the "Mental Health Matters" photoshoot in Cabot dining hall. The photoshoot took place in all quad dining halls on Saturday, and its purpose was to encourage students to save peer counseling groups' phone numbers into their phones.
A sign hangs over the door of an office in Pforzheimer House designated as a new shared space between the various peer counseling groups on campus. “Quad Talks” will be held Sunday through Thursday evenings and hosted by a different group every night in an effort to grant easier access to peer counseling groups to students housed in the Quad.
QuadTalk, a new initiative aimed at expanding mental health resources to Harvard’s Radcliffe Quad, opened its doors Sunday night in the basement of Pforzheimer House.
According to House Masters Richard Wrangham and Elizabeth Ross, the change is an “attempt to make easier the challenges of living in the quad.”
The construction, and the obstructions, are the result of a City of Cambridge project that looks to improve conditions in the Cambridge Common.
