Graduate Student Peer Supporters
Peer support offers an easily accessible and relatively informal opportunity to talk through any issues which may be concerning you. Often it can help simply to get things off your chest or to know that someone is genuinely willing to listen and take time to understand what’s on your mind. Sometimes just talking things through is enough; sometimes it may lead you to seek more professional help. All Peer Supporters have been carefully selected and trained to take up this role.
I believe advocacy for wellbeing and mental health awareness is incredibly important, especially amongst the postgraduate community. In 2019, I decided to train as a peer supporter within the Medical Sciences Division (MSD), as well as DPAG and college. We aim to provide as many support networks across the university setting, in the hope that people feel comfortable approaching us.
