Quadcast Ep. 31 – Born This Way Foundation’s Maya Enista Smith and Dr. Zoe Ragouzeos on how peer counseling can help address the campus mental health crisis
In a new survey with Born This Way Foundation, we learn students’ perceptions and experiences with peer counseling, revealing its increasing value as a resource. Defined as “the process of confiding in trained peers (fellow students, not friends) for mental health support, peer counseling may help ease the mental health crisis on college campuses, as we continue into the 3rd year of the pandemic.
Maya Enista Smith, Executive Director of the Born This Way Foundation, and Zoe Ragouzeos, Executive Director of Counseling and Wellness Services at New York University, present key findings and implications of the report, placing this new data in the context of college life and youth voices.
