Well-Being Peers

We often turn to our peers for advice or information because they know what it is like to be in our shoes. Well-being peers are trained to provide education and outreach that supports the well-being of other students.

Who We Are

Well-being peers are University of Missouri students working to create a campus culture where students can achieve balanced well-being. We come from many different backgrounds, but we all have a passion for well-being.

What We Cover

Through training, we learn how to provide student-centered, inclusive outreach, education, and advocacy on a variety of topics, including: alcohol and substance use, body image, healthy relationships, mental health and sexual health.

Outreach Events

Some of our past events have included sexual health trivia, hot chocolate consent bar, body image panel discussion, lunch and learn series, finals study snacks, nature walks, and T-shirt display for suicide awareness.
