All of our wellbeing peer mentors are students at Staffordshire University and are able to offer support on a one-to-onebasis, or to a small group of students to promote mental wellbeing.

Wellbeing peer mentors can help you in the following ways:

  • Being someone friendly to talk to and listening to your concerns in a non-judgemental way
  • Offer information from their own student experience on what can do to enhance your student experience.
  • Asist you to identify societies, groups or other activities related to your interests and hobbies
  • Attend a new group, or help with an introduction to a society
  • Signpost to specialist services within the university such as the wellbeing team within Student Support and Wellbeing Services.

The support offered by the wellbeing peer mentors is specifically tailored to support mental health. For more general mentor support please visit the Staffs Peer Mentoring webpage.
