Peer2Peer

Peer2Peer is an undergraduate and graduate student-led initiative that provides peer support in the form of one-on-session with peer responders. Through these conversations, we support anonymity and individual autonomy. Peer support connects us to each other through shared experiences.

We hope our Peer Responders’ diverse range of lived experiences can help students across the country find comfort during this unprecedented time. We encourage individuals to use this platform as an avenue to talk about what may be on their minds– both mental and non-mental health-related.

Peer2Peer values vulnerability, empathy, and perspectives that are innate to peer support.  We hope students across the country will seek support through Peer2Peer and encourage those around them to do the same.

Connect with Peer2Peer Services.
