The Peer Health Liaison program seeks to bridge a gap between BSD students and Student Health and Counseling Services. Liaisons are current BSD students who undergo a training session with SHCH senior leadership to become well-versed in the services and resources available to students. They communicate with their students via a monthly email digest with up-to-date information on SHCH services. They additionally meet monthly with leadership to discuss items brought to their attention by their peers. Visit the page for contact information.
