OUR PEER PROGRAMS
Peer Health Educators
Peer Health Educators (PHEs) create positive, fun, and non-judgemental programming with the goal of providing Queen's students with information and skills to make informed health and well-being decisions for themselves.
This year, PHEs have 8 topic teams made up of 41 volunteers. Each team has their own unique niche and works together on various projects. Some projects involve other campus partners, others involve creating informative videos and social media content.
Peer Wellness Coaches
Our Peer Wellness Coaching (PWC) program offers free 10-30 minute one-on-one appointments for any student who wants to change a movement-related health behaviour.
Areas of focus include moderate-vigorous physical activity (sweat), light physical activity (step), sedentary behaviour (sit), and sleep! PWCs use brief action planning strategies to support students in creating goals.
Through this, we strive to increase the mental, physical, and social health of the Queen's campus community!
Campus Observation Room
The Campus Observation Room (COR) is our on-site non-medical detox service overseen by Student Wellness Services with the support of trained student volunteers and Kingston Health Sciences Centre professional staff (ASWs). It is a voluntary, confidential and a non-judgmental place where students who have had too much to drink can come to sleep.
