We're the Positive Peers -here for students, by students.

Using a peer-to-peer approach, the Positive Peers help enhance the personal and collective wellbeing of King's College London students by giving evidence-based information, sharing experiences and connecting students with health-related resources.

Through health promotion and support, the Positive Peers are a key component of King's and contribute to our community's commitment to improve student mental health and wellbeing.

FAQs

Who are the Positive Peers?

We are health students who want to improve the personal and collective wellbeing of other King’s College London health students! We do this by giving evidence-based information, sharing experiences, supporting our peers and connecting each other with helpful resources. Mostly, though, we just want to create a happier, healthier community for health students at King’s!

What sort of training and supervision do we have?

  • We are volunteers who are trained to listen effectively, communicate sensitively, maintain confidentiality, respect boundaries and recognise when/how to encourage referral to professional support services.
  • We receive constant support and supervision through KCLSU.
  • We each sign a volunteer agreement.
