The PSC is launching a research initiative this year to better pinpoint how we can improve our services (and on-campus mental health services in general) and we want to hear from you! If you are a McGill student and would like to get involved, please fill out our survey below. The survey will be completely anonymous, however, if you are interested in contributing further to our research, we are also recruiting people to join our focus group. If you’d like to participate, please leave your email at the end of the form!
The Peer Support Centre (PSC) Executive Team consists of twelve McGill students, both undergraduate and graduate students. Our Executive is divided into three branches, with each Executive responsible for a specific portfolio.
The PSC’s peer supporters are a diverse group of student volunteers committed to providing empathetic, empowering, and non-judgmental peer support and referrals to the McGill student community. We strive to choose peer supporters from all walks of life, ranging from first years to graduate students, psychology majors to engineering majors, and those with previous peer support experience to those without.
Applications for Peer Supporters are closed. Thank you for all of your thoughtful applications! Please fill out this interest form and be informed for when applications open again!
