Peer Mentors

The PSC welcomes SGU students to volunteer as Peer Mentors. Duties will not be so demanding as to interfere with studies. They will include:

  • Serving on the PSC Advisory Committee and assisting with:
    • Program and policy development.
    • Liaison between PSC and the student body.
    • Regular needs assessment and advising clinicians on results.
    • Developing and implementing marketing strategies.
    • Mental health screenings and other outreach efforts (e.g., substance abuse prevention).
    • Inclusiveness initiatives (e.g., welcoming diverse community members).
  • Supporting peers who are in crisis (e.g., post-assault).

Successful applicants are trained in paraprofessional counseling by PSC clinicians. Preference will be given to those with prior experience in the mental health fields and who are in their first term of studies at SGU. Desire to help others is required. Women and men from diverse populations are encouraged to apply.

If you are interested in being a Peer Mentor, please submit a brief cover letter and vita or resume to the Peer Mentor Coordinator in the PSC. Appropriate persons will be contacted for an interview.
