The Be Well Do Well Peer Mentor Program is a peer based mentoring program which connects peer mentors with students with mental health issues. The goals of the Program are to support students in creating and maintaining their wellness and academic success and to create connections, conversations and a supportive and resilient college community.
We believe that there are many benefits to being a peer mentee. The most significant one is having the perspective of a peer. That is a powerful and very meaningful perspective. We believe you will also benefit from:
- peer support to help you to overcome barriers, achieve success, and build resiliency
- connecting with a supportive and a non- judgmental person
- getting support and a different perspective from a mentor when exploring options and goals
- trying new approaches and skills in a safe relationship
- getting practical information about how to maintain wellness
- learning how to access college and community resources
- getting support through life transitions
- increasing self-awareness and confidence
As a note, to be a mentee within the Be Well Do Well Peer Mentor program you must meet the following criteria:
- You must be available to meet with your Mentor either Monday’s or Tuesday’s between the hours of 8:30AM-4:30PM on the Fennell Campus
- You must be a full-time student at Mohawk College
- Students in the Social Service Worker (SSW) program are unfortunately not eligible to be a mentee as all of our mentors within the program are also SSW students at Mohawk College
