Peer supporters

They have the advantage of knowing the stresses and strains of student life and can often offer support for the problems commonly encountered by students. However, if a student has serious emotional or mental health problems, peer support alone is unlikely to be enough, and help should be sought from a GP or counsellor.

Peer supporters can advise on the other forms of support available both within the college and beyond. Peer supporters are supervised on a regular basis by the University Counselling Service to make sure that the level of support they are offering is appropriate.
