Student advocates for Balanced LifeStyles

Peer Mentors for Balanced Life Styles are Westminster College students who are committed to making safe and healthy choices about using alcohol and other drugs. Peer Mentors are trained and supervised by the Westminster College Counseling Center.

The Peer Mentoring Program offers opportunities for students to make healthier and safer choices involving their alcohol/other drug use and related student wellness behaviors. They conduct classes, outreach activities and presentations focusing on healthy choice making/awareness/harm reduction. Peers also staff wellness information outreach tables. Peer Mentors provide literature on harm reduction and the possible effects of alcohol and other drugs. Peer Mentors can also talk to students one on one about concerns and questions.
