2018 - 2019 P2Ps (Peer2Peer)

What is a P2P?

The Counseling Services Center Peer Educators (P2P) are SUNY Oswego students who engage, empower, and promote educational campus environments connected to psychological health and wellness. The role of the P2P Educator is to facilitate programs and provide information on mental health topics that can impact the academic and social success and overall well-being of SUNY Oswego students. P2P Educators are committed to teaching skills that can help fellow students reduce potential for distressful life experiences (prevention) and to resolve stressful situations more quickly should they arise. P2P Educators are undergraduate students who represent a rich diversity of cultural and life experiences. They have a commitment to learning, teaching, assessing, role modeling, communicating in person and using social media, and effective presentation skills.
