Peer Student Supporters (PSS)
Feeling stressed? Whether it’s adapting to student life, exams, or emotional disconnect, life can be stressful at NUS, but you are not alone. The caring Peer Student Supporters are here to lend a listening ear. They are fellow students who have undergone training to be equipped with skills to befriend and support peers. They'll be able to guide you to appropriate help and resources within campus. You don’t have to be an expert to help a friend!
PSS are available at Pitstop@Science on Mondays to Fridays, 1-5pm.
Otherwise, please email OSAcares@nus.edu.sg to arrange for a session to speak with a PSS.
Throughout the year, PSS also organise outreach and wellness events to promote self-care and community-care. Follow them on Instagram @nus.pss to be updated.
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.
