Peer Support


Peer support is an important factor to support mental well-being in students. As peers would be going through similar pressures and challenges, students might feel more comforted and trust in them, compared to adult figures. As such, equipping selected students to listen and empathise can be a protective factor. Join this workshop if you would like to learn the skills that you can use to introduce peer support in your school.

  • Understand more about the CHEERS model for Peer support
  • Learn practical skills and mindsets they need to have to empathise and support their students
  • Be able to teach their students how to support each other using the CHEERS model
