What do they do?
Peer support involves people providing support to one another, whether in the form of emotional, social or practical help. In a university setting this involves students providing support and sharing experiences and knowledge with one another. They may centre around a particular experience or set of experiences. Past groups have included: mental health support, support for students with disabilities, bereavement support and cancer support.
How do I get involved?
If you are interested in setting up a peer support group in the coming year, Talk for Health will be running three training sessions. These will be in late October/early November and in January. More detail about this will be posted here as and when they are fully confirmed.
Details of both these trainings and established groups will be posted here and shared in an all-student email.
