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.
The Peer Support Space has been intentionally created to be a space unlike any other on-campus offering:
The Peer Support Space is located in St. James Building Room 157, across from the Student Life Centre.
