Peer Support

Our Peer Supporters are here to listen to you!

The Peer Supporters at the Faith and Spirituality Centre are currently on break and will be back in early October. 


What is Peer Support?

Come virtually visit with a trained student volunteer who is ready to listen and talk with you about your concerns. Peer listeners are knowledgeable about on- and off-campus resources that might be suitable for your current experience. Everything you tell them is confidential unless you're at risk of harming yourself or someone else. Peer listeners are supported by Student Wellness Services.

Peer listening is a drop-in service, if you encounter a Waiting Room the peer listeners may currently be supporting another student and will admit you when they are able to talk with you. 

Note: the Faith and Spirituality Centre's peer support program runs in the Fall and Winter semesters. We will be back in October!
