Mental Health Outreach Peer Educators (M-HOPE)
The peer educator group, M-HOPE, provides students with tips about coping skills, managing stress, increasing emotional awareness, and understanding how to engage in self care. In addition, M-HOPE educates students about on and off-campus resources, and how to navigate them; and trains students how to help friends who may be struggling.
