A new report examining peer mental health supports on college campuses found that such programs are popular and useful, though they also raise some concerns. The report, Peer Programs in College Student Mental Health, commissioned by the Ruderman Family Foundation and produced by the Mary Christie Institute, was based on interviews with 22 peer counseling and mental health experts and survey responses from 57 college counseling center directors.
