The Mental Health and Wellness Program is meant to enhance the academic support that NITEP provides to our students.
NITEP Wellness Peers will provide holistic support and ensure that students are aware of resources through the Wellness Centre, Counselling Services, First Nations House of Learning, and many other resources on campus and at regional field centres.
The NITEP Assistant Director will mentor the Wellness Peers and act as a Wellness Liaison for other units across the university.
NITEP Wellness Peers help enhance student wellbeing by sharing evidence-based health information, and connecting NITEP students with wellness-related resources on and off campus. The NITEP Wellness Peers support students’ wellness by promoting culturally relevant, proactive, wellness strategies to students, so that they are able to achieve academic and personal success.
NITEP Wellness Peers and the Wellness Liaison are trained to offer relevant and culturally appropriate support to help NITEP students live well, and achieve success.
