Peer Support Program

The Peer Support Program is a new resource for students run by Andy Benjamin, JD, PhD, ABPP and current UW law students. It provides peer counseling to help end the feeling of isolation while at law school, resources to manage stress, and also promotes mental health in our student community. Peer counselors will help to empower their fellow law students to address the wide-range of personal and academic challenges associated with law school. Multicultural engagement will remain a key approach in all interactions. Visit their website to request a session with a peer counselor or learn more about the program.
