University peer support: Can non-professional interventions improve student mental health and wellbeing?
June 23 at 9:00 am - 10:00 am
As the needs of students evolve and the demand for services increase, universities are searching for new approaches to support students. Although peer-run community mental health programs are effective, the research to understand university peer support is lacking. This talk will explore new research from the UK exploring this non-professional intervention for student mental health and wellbeing.
