UWSA – University of Windsor Students' Alliance

It’s Okay not to be Okay.

The Peer Support Centre is a drop-in centre where students from across campus can find a supportive peer to talk to. It’s a safe and inclusive space where trained peer support volunteers offer peer counselling to students.

 

Our volunteers are University of Windsor students who have gone through extensive training to better enable them to give support to their peers. The Peer Support Centre is a UWSA initiative, in collaboration with the Student Counselling Centre. We are also supported by Student & International Affairs.

In The Right Place and Time

After hearing an infant’s first cry, a pair of white wings from the bed of clouds would fall from the skies.Everyone had a guardian angel. Their kind stood bright, cherubic, and rosy-cheeked. Their strong wings stretched for miles and shielded their wards from harm, with the promise of protection said on musical tongues that any child would believe. The only exception was that their assigned guardian angel would be the only one they could see.
