BCcampus, in partnership with Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training and in consultation with students, staff, and faculty across the B.C. post-secondary system, developed resources that build foundational skills around peer support to promote the mental health and wellness of students.

The Peer-Support Adaptation Project has the purpose of adapting the resources that were created from the Provincial Peer-Support Training Curriculum (PPTC) Project. The PPTC Project was funded by the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions to create a provincial peer-support worker curriculum for peer-support workers across the province. The Peer-Support Adaptation Project, through review by an advisory group of students, staff, and faculty and a subject-matter expert, adapted the curriculum for the post-secondary sector.
