COVID-19 UPDATE: Peer Support drop-in hours cancelled for fall term

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and in order to follow public health guidelines, in-person Peer Support services have been suspended for the Fall semester. An update on winter services will come later this fall.

If you are looking for one-on-one support, please book a same-day counselling appointment with the Student Health & Wellness Centre. You can book an appointment online or by calling 902-494-2171.

Through the Stay Connected Mental Health Project, Dalhousie and King's both have two on-campus peer support workers who provide free, non-judgmental, confidential, and safe mental health support to students.

Meet Dalhousie's 2020-21 Peer Support workers 

Stay Connected Mental Health Peer Support workers are supervised by Dalhousie Student Health and Wellness and King's Dean of Students and have received 16 hours of training adapted from the Nova Scotia Certified Peer Support Specialist Program and other training programs from across Canada. They also have their own personal experiences with mental health, allowing them to identify, relate to, and support students on a peer-to-peer level.
