NHTI students can meet with a trained peer for confidential conversations and listening support. For some students, this is an important first step in getting connected to a professional counselor; for others, it simply helps them to reduce stress and vent in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Peer counselors receive training on setting boundaries, limits to confidentiality, and active listening.
Peer counseling is available in-person or via Zoom by appointment. We can tailor the program to meet student needs in ongoing or one-time sessions. Our peer counselors offer weekly drop-in hours in ACE and the Health and Counseling office. We hold group discussion sessions twice per month on topics such as finding motivation and feeling isolated.
