The Peer Support Centre is operated by the Alma Mater Society through the Social Issues Commission.
The Peer Support Centre Manager is a student employed by the Alma Mater Society. The Peer Support Centre operates with five volunteer coordinators and approximately 100 volunteers who take shifts in the Centre, carry out Marketing and Outreach tasks, run trigger support booths at various events, and facilitate our residence outreach program. All volunteers at the Peer Support Centre undergo extensive training, including peer helping skills, suicide awareness, health and wellness, grief, human rights, sexual assault, domestic violence/abuse, anti-oppression, accessibility, and Positive Space training.
The Peer Support Centre is supported by Queen’s University’s Student Wellness Services. Additionally, the Peer Support Centre has partnered with Addiction and Mental Health Services mobile crisis workers who provide emergency crisis support.
Remember, we are always here for you.
