What Students are Saying

  • "My greatest takeaway is a feeling of empowerment in to create change on my campus and help other students going through difficult situations, and I feel as though now I have the skills necessary to do that."

  • "As a pre-med student, no shadowing experience or internship has reaffirmed my desire to become a physician as much as this class has. It has given me a renewed sense of purpose and motivation to become a physician focused on helping others, and has completely changed what I consider to be good "helping." I have even begun to consider specializing in psychiatry. Whatever I specialize in, though, I am so thankful for the perspective and experience that peer education has and will give me."

  • "I really enjoy the class and how it teaches us a wide ranging set of skills that apply to many different situations. The course has provided me a greater understanding and appreciation of mental health and the services surrounding it."
