Program for Students with Mental Health Conditions – PEER: Promoting Education & Emotional Resilience
The PEER (Promoting Education & Emotional Resilience) Program seeks to empower students to learn about their mental health, develop positive coping skills, and work through navigating challenging barriers.
This 6-week workshop will help students develop resiliency skills utilizing techniques derived from evidenced-based practices such at Mindfulness, ACT, Executive Function, CBT, Emotion Regulation with DBT, and Resiliency training in collaboration with the RCPD and Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS). The goal of the PEER Program is to help students learn about and identify skills for emotional regulation through challenging events and situations, such as those typically experienced in times of academic stress.
Participants are expected to commit to both workshops and support groups for the 6-week duration of the program (a 1.5-hour weekly commitment).
