Mental health awareness & destigmatization
Men's mental health
Why Am I a Peer Counselor: Mental health awareness and normalization are big priorities of mine. Mental health issues are far too often kept to oneself, particularly among undergraduate men, and I want to give people an opportunity to open up that might not typically be available. I also appreciate the idea of talking with peers and like-minded students as opposed to licensed professionals, saving money and allowing for an arguably more trustworthy environment. I pride myself on being a strong listener and providing a safe and comfortable environment where trust and vulnerability can flourish.
