Stay Connected Mental Health Project: Peer Support Program
The Campus Peer Support Program is a collaborative initiative of the Stay Connected Mental Health Project, Dalhousie University and four other universities in Halifax. There are two on-campus peer support workers who provide free, non-judgemental, confidential, and safe mental health support to students.
The role of the Peer Support Worker is to :
- Form a supportive, coaching relationship with students who have mental health problem/distress.
- Provide support for fellow student by facilitating self-reflection and growth, building confidence, and encouraging healthy lifestyle choices and positive coping strategies, within the parameters of a peer support relationship.
- Encourage the access of mental health services, if required
- Peer Support Workers are also students, who have their own personal experience with mental health, allowing them to identify, relate to and support students on a peer-to-peer level.
Location: DSU Wellness Room
Office Hours: Monday to Thursday: 4:00 – 6:00pm
