The Peer Support Centre is open to all SAIT students. Located in NJ105 in the Senator Burns building on the main campus. Students seeking peer support services from other campuses are encouraged to connect with peer listeners on the 7cups app.
Peer Support staff and volunteers are trained to be empathetic and active listeners that have their own lived experiences with mental health and navigating the transition to life as a student. Peer Support is offered in a comfortable and casual setting and is best suited for venting or looking for further resources. Support is offered in an unstructured way so students can stay as long as they like within operating hours and talk about as many issues as they like.
The Peer Support Centre is open for drop-in from 9am – 5pm Monday through Friday and additionally from 5pm-7pm on Thursday nights for Pride. Students can participate in activities, utilize peer support services, explore resources, or just relax. It’s a great place to connect to other students in a warm and friendly environment.
The Peer Support Centre is always looking for compassionate and enthusiastic volunteers. We offer flexible shifts that work with your schedule, it is a 2 hour per week commitment. If you are interested in volunteering in the Saitsa Peer Support Centre visit our volunteer page.
