Peer support for mental health is an area of interest for many post-secondary institutions across British Columbia. Campus members have implemented, and continue to implement, unique programs offering students a variety of services and supports that connect them with a community of their peers.
To assist campus peer support programs in meeting the unique demands of a campus population, Healthy Minds | Healthy Campuses (HM|HC) interviewed 11 peer support organizers–representing seven diverse post-secondary institutions in BC–on the current culture and environment of peer support at their institutions, and compiled them into a Guide. The objective was to develop a collection of ideas and considerations, based on the experiences of these 11 organizers, to assist new programs and further the development of existing ones.
