Need to talk? Come to the Peer Support Network - a free, confidential, drop-in space offering peer support, information and referrals to the McGill community.
Sometimes, talking to someone is what we need. Students can talk about anything and everything, in a one-on-one private setting with our trained Peer Supporters. Our Peer Supporters have gone through comprehensive training on listening to and helping students with a range of issues, including but not limited to academic stress, relationships, sexuality, disordered eating, substance abuse, and campus resources.
The goal of peer support is that through open sharing of their experiences and/or concerns, students will feel empowered to resolve whatever they may be going through. We also have connections with campus resources, so if we cannot help you, we can refer you to someone who can. All students are welcome.
Peer Supporters are the life of our program and we encourage all interested students to apply to volunteer with us! Below is the online application and guide that encompasses all the key information to help you understand what is expected of our volunteers, what to expect from the application process, and frequently asked questions.
Applications are now closed.
