Peer Counselling


    Supportive Peer Listening At MUCM

    Peer counseling is a valuable and supportive resource that many universities, including MUCM, often offer to their students. Peer counseling involves trained student volunteers who provide informal guidance, support, and a listening ear to their fellow peers; allowing them to share their concerns with those who understand their experience and struggles. Peer counseling complements the formal counseling services offered by MUCM, contributing to a holistic approach to mental health and well-being.

    Become A Peer Counsellor

    Our student volunteers interested in becoming peer counselors undergo training sessions to develop active listening skills, empathy,, leadership skills, sense of social responsibility and basic counseling techniques. Confidentiality is a cornerstone of peer counseling, ensuring that our students feel safe discussing their issues without fear of judgment or disclosure. While our peer counselors provide informal support, they are trained to recognize when a student might need professional help and can provide appropriate referrals.

    Peer Support Groups

    There are also Peer Support Groups, where students facing similar challenges can come together to share their experiences and coping strategies. Our team of counselors are continuously improving the programme by collecting feedback from students using peer counselling services.
