Peer Educators

As part of our suicide prevention efforts, we recruit Feather River College students as Peer Educators. Peer Educators serve as a link between the student body and the Mental Health Counseling Center, promoting the personal and academic success of all students by supporting overall wellness. Peer Educators conduct presentations and host numerous de-stress events throughout the academic year, educating the campus community on mental health in effort to reduce stigma associated with diagnoses and increase help seeking behaviors.

All students are welcome to apply! For more information, contact: Sr Office Assistant, Dora Mitchell at dmithchell@frc.edu
