Relationships, both educational and personal, are an important part of all our lives. It is also important to find and form healthy relationships, and effective communication is a building block for any successful relationships. If you are having challenges, concerns, or just have general questions about relationships, there are a number of resources at K-State to provide discussion and support. You can also download the brochure on Healthy Relationships to provide some initial suggestions.
