A partnership between Office of Student Engagement and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is creating a peer mentor leadership program to provide support and education to fellow students on mental health and wellness. The program will train peer mentor leaders to offer personal support and education regarding mental health and wellness to fellow peers in a group setting. In addition, the program will assist in reducing stigma, increasing prevention efforts and providing information and education to the campus community related to mental health and wellness through monthly outreach events provided by the peer mentor leaders. Peer mentors will be required to attend an extensive training session over a weekend re-treat off site that will take place in late August or early September. Continued training and supervision will be provided throughout the peer mentor experience. We are looking to identify 4 peer mentors that will work from September 2019 to May 2020 an average of 12 hours a month.
For any questions regarding this position, please contact Sara Byczek, Director of CAPS and Disability Services at 313-593-5430.
Work study students are eligible for this opportunity. Both undergraduate and graduate students with an interest in mental health and wellness are encouraged to apply.
