P08. Prevalence, Nature, and Scope of Peer Programs Supporting College Student Mental Health


We are conducting a review of all institutional members (N = 776) of the American College Health Association to document the prevalence, nature, and scope of college student peer support programs and better understand the demands placed on students who provide peer support. We aim to illuminate how students are supporting their fellow students' mental health and prompt further research and conversation on best practices for peer support programs, including more efficient monitoring of supporter well-being.
