Peer Student Supporters

Feeling down? Getting stressed? PSS is here. You don't need to be an expert to be a friend. Sometimes a good chat is all we need.

Peer Student Supporters (PSS)

Are you feeling stressed? Whether it’s adapting to student life, exams, or emotional disconnect, life can be stressful at NUS, but you are not alone.

Student Support Services (S3) offers peer support to NUS students and we are here for you. You don’t have to be an expert to help a friend! Our caring Peer Student Supporters (PSS) are available at the PitStop@YIH five days a week to support you in your everyday challenges that student may face. We are here to lend a listening ear.

What are the benefits of speaking with a peer?

Students may benefit from the support and empathy of a peer, and may choose to speak with a PSS for many reasons. Some students may find it easy to connect with a peer who is at a similar life stage and who may be experiencing similar life challenges. They may find the drop-in setup less intimidating than more formal services or they may be unsure if the issues they are facing warrant connecting with a professional. Speaking to a PSS is like speaking with a friend.
