Peer to Peer Support Program

If you don’t feel like meeting with a licensed professional, but you want to talk to someone other than a friend or family member, a peer counselor is a great option.

Trained and supervised by WSU Counseling staff, peer counselors can help with concerns such as: 

  • Adjusting to college 
  • Relationship, family, and roommate issues 
  • General stress 
  • Homesickness 
  • Making friends 

All peer counselors are Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) certified and have additional training on how to best support students.

The Peer to Peer (P2P) Program was created because every student deserves a supportive community to navigate the challenges of university life. We’re working to build a campus-wide support network that empowers students to thrive academically, emotionally, and socially.
