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.

**Please note that this program will continue to operate in-person, however, only one student may utilize this service at a time and PPE must be worn**

The Peer Support Space has been intentionally created to be a space unlike any other on-campus offering:

  • Calming items to help with grounding
  • Resources for students to learn from
  • Peers to provide hope and help
  • Privacy and confidentiality
  • White noise machine

This year, the Peer Support Space will be located in Clare Hall Residence, room 261. (Formerly the second study room). If you do not live in residence, simply sign out the key at the Clare Hall front desk and then sign it back in when you are done accessing this drop-in support.
