You don't have to feel lonely!
Do you need a sympathetic ear? Do you sometimes feel lonely or are you looking for a friendly conversation with a fellow student? Or would you like to take a walk in nature together? Maybe you could go to an event together, or someone can show you around town or the faculty. Our peer supporters are here for you. Even during the holidays and from home (movie night, game night, etc.).
Peer support is about attention to the wellbeing of all students. With each other and for each other. A peer supporter is trained and guided to offer support in an informal, yet well-informed manner. A peer supporter is not a social worker! You don't have to experience emotional problems to find a peer supporter. If the peer supporter notices that a student needs more help, he will refer to other support.
Attention to the wellbeing of all students. With each other and for each other. Give or receive support in a relaxed, informal setting; feel part of the student community.
