Mental Health Peer Educators

The Mental Health Peer Educators are a group of students devoted to educating others about mental health. The Mental Health Peer Educators conduct outreach to engage, educate, and support students. They are the first line of support, and oftentimes refer students to other services on campus. The Peers understand and are sensitive to the concerns and challenges their fellow students face, and are a resource for helping students deal with their stressors.
