Thanks so much for your interest in Peer Support! First, make sure you’ve clicked on your desired session & changed the text from AVAILABLE to BOOKED on the calendar. Then, fill out this intake form!
We just wanted to remind you that our peer supporters are fellow medical students, and so we are not a professional resource. If you’d like to seek out a professional resource, feel free to check out our resource sheets or talk to a peer supporter to find out what may be the best professional support for you! As well, know that peer supporters follow a strict confidentiality policy (check out the FAQ!)
