SAIT student association opens peer-run student support centre

November 21, 2013

SAIT Polytechnic’s Students’ Association has unveiled a new student-run support centre to provide mental health resources and support to all SAIT students. The centre will be staffed during weekdays by students who will offer a supportive ear to peers who may be experiencing mental health or personal wellbeing challenges, and will help them find the right resources. The student association and SAIT have also launched a new campaign about respect on campus to coincide with the opening of the support centre. The campaign, around the theme of “Demand Respect,” includes posters, web ads and other tactics that will aim to raise awareness about the help available to those who experience discrimination or harassment.
