The Campus Peer Support Pilot Project

In this webinar we invite Bonnie Lipton-Bos from CMHA National to talk to us about the Campus Peer Support pilot project. This national project works closely with post-secondary institutions to train and empower students with lived and living experience of mental health or substance use to support their fellow students, in partnership with local CMHA offices. She will be joined by two post-secondary sites who will talk about their experience with the project. Come hear about how peer support values are in action on campus, what makes the collaboration work, program impact and successes to date.
