While their guidance will provide support and education, it is not a substitute for medical or psychological treatment. Therefore, Wellness Peer Mentors will refer you to on-campus resources for assistance on matters beyond their training. If you believe that depression, anxiety, or other mental health disorders may be a factor for you please visit KSU Counseling and Psychological Services.

Wellness Peer Mentors look forward to coaching you on your journey to achieving your mental health and wellness goals.
