Winter 2021 Support Options
The Student Life space is currently closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic but we are available by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Like many other resources at UFV, we have been working hard to make the transition to an online service.
PRLC Peer Support Line | Monday to Friday | 5 pm to 11 pm PST
The Coast Capital Savings Peer Resource and Leadership Centre (PRLC) is excited to announce the launch of the Peer Support Line for students! We have transitioned our traditionally in-person peer support program to an online model.
The Peer Support Line is a one-on-one audio and chat peer support resource facilitated by trained student Peer Leaders through Blackboard Collaborate.
We recognize the additional struggles that you are facing as we attempt to navigate this “new normal”. It’s important to have someone to chat with that understands the challenges of being a student and is also trained in the resources available within UFV and the broader Fraser Valley community. Our Peer Leaders are here to listen, to support, and to guide you to appropriate resources. Please note, our volunteers are not trained as counsellors, crisis line, or suicide line workers.
The Peer Support Line is open Monday to Friday from 5 pm – 11 pm by appointment (same day appointments are welcome).
For any questions regarding the Peer Support Line or the PRLC, please contact Ashley Ward-Hall, Coordinator, at email@example.com.
Note: Our volunteers are NOT trained as counsellors, crisis line, or suicide line workers. If you are seeking one of these services please seek out one of the crisis resources below:
- 9-1-1 if you are in an emergency.
- 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433): for individuals who are or know someone who is having thoughts of suicide. The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and in up to 140 languages.
