Volunteers Needed for Peer Support Centre

PUBLISHED DATE: Monday, August 21, 2017
Mission Statement
The St. Thomas Peer Support centre is a confidential, non-judgmental, supportive and safe place to speak to our volunteers. All volunteers are trained in confidentiality, listening skills, supporting skills and providing resources. At the centre we provide one-on-one confidential sessions with a volunteer, referrals to resources both on and off campus and a comfortable space to relax if you need to destress. No concern is too big or too small. Our centre is here to provide kind, nonjudgmental support whenever needed.
 
What is Peer Support?
Peer support is a supportive relationship between two individuals who share a common experience. The peer support relationship should be comprised of trust, empathy, understanding and respect. Peer support is a valuable source of empowerment for students because the peer and volunteer may have many shared experiences that are common for university students such as; academic stress, relationship stress and mental health struggles.
 
Goals of the Peer Support Centre
The STU peer support centre is a space where volunteers can help their peers by listening, supporting, and providing referrals to the appropriate services. We at the centre strive to be;
  • Inclusive of all genders, sexes, sexualities, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, religions, races, ages and statuses.
  • Person-centered.
  • Empowering to all who enter the centre.
  • Open and available to students when they need it the most.
  • A supportive and nonjudgmental service to students at the St. Thomas campus.
  • Respectful towards the inherent dignity and worth of all persons.
  • Confidential for those who use the centre.
  • A centre for support not advice giving, counselling or guidance.
  • A centre in which students can receive appropriate and accurate referrals to services across campus and the Fredericton community.
  • A comfortable, warm setting for relaxation.
  • Advocates for mental wellness on campus.
  • Dedicated to our own self-care and advocates of self-care for all St. Thomas.
