Wellness Peer and Peer Wellness Coaches Training

This 2 day series of workshops and skill building is intended to build the capacity and knowledge for new volunteer Wellness Peers and Peer Wellness Coaches.
We’ll be examining how to talk and support our peers in conversations about wellness, health, and wellbeing as well as how to share resources and referrals, including specific on campus resources.
These programs, run by the UBC Wellness Centre as part of UBC Peer Programs, contribute to empowering and supporting the student body. Wellness Peers support students’ wellness by promoting proactive, wellness strategies to students, so that they are able to achieve academic and personal success.
This training series is open to all new volunteers in the programs as well as others who might be interested in developing these skills.
