Peer Health Team

The role of the Peer Health Advocate is to work with Student Life to promote an atmosphere on campus that facilitates the spiritual, social, emotional, physical and intellectual well-being of our students. As part of the Peer Health Team, Peer Health Advocates help to raise awareness around mental health and wellness through various programming and events. They will also listen and respond to student concerns, making referrals to Student Life, counselling services, and other campus resources. Team members are Ambrose students that have completed one year of studies on campus, and work closely with the Wellness Office.

To contact the Peer Health Team, please email wellness@ambrose.edu

I am a third-year Psychology student at Ambrose. Mental health is a struggle that affects most students in university and as a Peer Health Advocate this year, I aim to work in conjunction with Student Life and Tracey, the Wellness Coordinator, to provide you with the right resources to make you feel more at ease. University can be a tough environment to come into or already be in, but the good thing is you don’t have to do it alone, the Peer Health Team is here to listen and direct you to the most helpful resources for you.

I am in my second year as a Behavioural Science Major. I enjoy being with my friends and I have a desire to be holistically healthy and influence those around me as well. This is why I decided to join the peer health team, to learn, grow and share the knowledge with my peers. I am enjoying advocating for the health of my peers and really looking forward to what we can accomplish together. I am thrilled to be able to offer any assistance that I can and be present in building a healthy loving community here at Ambrose and wherever life takes me.
