About

SMU Peer Helpers Symposium

The Singapore Management University (SMU) Peer Helpers Symposium is organised by Mrs Wong Kwok Leong Student Wellness Centre. First launched in 2017, it served as a platform to share peer helping information with schools and institutions. In 2017, our theme was ‘Sharing and Sustaining the Peer Helping Experience’.

The theme for this year’s symposium is ‘Sharing and Supporting the Peer Helping Experience’, it presents a platform for us to share related information with existing peer helping groups from various schools and institutions. It is also an opportunity for a diverse community of peer helpers to connect, collaborate, and exchange ideas, trends and practices within related fields.

Participants can look forward to insightful keynote speeches and panel discussions by respected expert individuals across related fields. We hope this symposium can be a resource for schools interested in starting a peer helping programme in the future.

About

SMU Peer Helpers

SMU Peer Helpers are full-time undergraduate students who work closely with the counsellors at the Mrs Wong Kwok Leong Student Wellness Centre. They undergo weekly trainings with professionals of SMU and external institutions to be equipped with helping skills that enable them to become better supporters to their peers during times of need. Due to their close contact and frequent interactions with fellow SMU students, the Peer Helpers effectively act as a bridge which connects the Centre with the larger SMU community and forms the “Emotional Safety Net” of the school. Additionally, the SMU Peer Helpers organise outreach activities every semester, which aim to promote mental and emotional well-being and build a strong support network within the SMU community.
