Staff and students sitting in the Peer Support Space.

Peer Support Space

The Peer Support Space, driven by the Wellness Peers, is a program focused on peer-to-peer support for students experiencing mild to moderate mental health concerns. This drop-in service encourages students seeking support to come and speak with thoroughly trained Wellness Peers who promote mental health wellbeing, resilience building and increasing self-care and self-management strategies.

This service is the first stop for many students before accessing further services. This service is run through the Student Life Centre and while this program is provided by Brescia students, they are advised by Brescia staff members.
