Peer groups are safe spaces for people to have real conversations about what it's like to live with their illnesses. They are lead and attended by people that live with a certain mental illness, encouraging open discussions and allowing for students living with the same illness to support each other and share tips on what they've found helps with their disorder.
This Winter 2021 semester, in response to your requests, we will have an anxiety and a depression peer group running.
Peer group sessions are held every other week over Zoom and are 1 hour long. At each session, there is a discussion time around a topic related to the mental illness of the group as well as some time for the members to take part in fun and engaging activities together.
Time & Dates
Anxiety and depression peer groups will be occurring on alternating weeks to make it easier to attend both. The anxiety peer group is on Wednesdays at 6 PM and the depression peer group on Mondays also at 6 PM. Find their registration links and dates below!
Please only attend the anxiety or depression peer group if you are a student and believe you're living with an anxiety disorder or depression, respectively. Your experience will be richer if you attend all the sessions, from start to finish, but you may come in for any night you are able or wish to. At each meeting, if you wish, the facilitator will note your attendance for us to log your CCR hours.
