Peer Support

Peer Support provides free, confidential, one-on-one peer support for UBC students and staff facing a wide variety of challenges. Our trained Peer Supporters are prepared to talk to you about academic stress, burnout, loneliness, depression, anxiety, substance use, mental health, relationship struggles, sexual violence, LGBTQ2S+ identity, grief and more. No issue is too big or too small.

If you don’t know where to begin, booking a session is a great place to start.

Our Education and Outreach Branch is responsible for substance use and harm reduction education including but not limited to: Naloxone training, fentanyl test strip distribution, and mental health and substance use workshops for the greater UBC community.
