PEER: Promoting Education & Emotional Resilience is designed for students with mental health conditions in mind. PEER will consist of 8-weekly psychoeducation workshops to help students develop resiliency skills utilizing techniques derived from evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Dialectical Behavior (DBT), and Acceptance & Commitment (ACT) therapies, Mindfulness and Resiliency training in collaboration with the Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities (RCPD) and Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS). Each weekly workshop will contain different skill development opportunities in topics such as: acceptance of one’s diagnosis, executive functioning, cognitive reframing, mindfulness, stress reduction, resilience training, and emotion regulation. PEER participants will also have a dedicated practical application support group to allow students to discuss what they learned in the weekly psychoeducation workshops and how they apply it in their own lives in an informal, supportive environment. Participants are expected to commit to all eight weeks of the program, approximately 2 hours per week.
