The Peer Helper Program is a peer support program which launched in November 2014 at Mcgill's Macdonald campus. It offers a safe space for anyone on campus who wishes to drop-in and talk to a peer. Peer Helpers are trained student volunteers who offer their presence and their support. They are here to listen non-judgmentally, in all confidentiality, and if needed provide referral to different resources. The PHP was created in the hope of breaking isolation on campus, as well as reducing the stigma associated with mental distress and promoting help-seeking.

When: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 8:30 PM
Where: CC-115 (Near the MCSS offices)
