Helping Ontario's colleges and universities enhance capacity to support student mental health and well-being

Campus Initiative

Peers Are Here

A non-judgmental drop-in space where you can connect with fellow students, discuss your university experience, and practice mental wellness through mutual peer support. A work-study student was hired by Health & Wellness to act as the coordinator for the Peers Are Here Program. Currently, there are five Peers Are Here groups across campus serving undergraduate, graduate and international students.  This program aims to provide peer-to-peer support for students within their local communities.
