Peer Support

Our Peer Supporters are here to listen to you!

FSC Peer Support is currently unavailable. Options for Peer Support at the FSC will open again in February.


What is Peer Support?

The Faith and Spirituality Centre's Peer Supporters are currently on break. Please check back in February to find out when Peer Support will resume. For more Peer Support options, please visit https://www.ucalgary.ca/wellness-services/services/mental-health-services/peer-support.

Come visit with a trained student volunteer who is ready to listen and talk with you about your concerns. Peer listeners are knowledgeable about on- and off-campus resources that might suit your current experience. Everything you tell them is confidential unless you're at risk of harming yourself or someone else. Peer listeners are supported by Student Wellness Services.

 

How Do I Access Peer Support? 

In Person: Drop into the Faith and Spirituality Centre (MSC 487) during peer support hours and let the front desk staff know that you would like to speak with a peer supporter.

Virtual: Click here to enter the Zoom waiting room. You will be admitted shortly. You are welcome to keep your camera on or off. You may also use the chat function if you prefer. 

Please email vitruvian@ucalgary.ca if you would like to request a specific appointment time. 

Trained volunteers

Volunteers are trained in active listening and helping skills. Everything you tell them is confidential, unless you're at risk of harming yourself or someone else.
