Support Seeker

The DigiPsyRes network is designed to provide students with the resources and support that they need to build both digital and psychological resilience. The network is established and sustained by the three universities, so they all make sure that specific student populations, such as first-generation students, students with disabilities, and international students are included. This allows for more targeted support and ensures more targeted support is enabled.

Some types of peer support include:

Peer support is based on trust, equality, shared understanding, respect and mutual empowerment between people in similar situations. The most effective peer relationships are between people with other things in common.

Core elements of peer support network include:

Students who seek support from this university peer support network for psychological and digital resilience can expect a safe and supportive environment where they can discuss their concerns with peers who understand what they are going through. The network is designed to provide a space for students to receive emotional support, guidance, and advice from their peers who have undergone similar experiences.
The support seekers can expect confidentiality and a non-judgmental approach from their peers. They can expect to be treated with empathy and respect, and to receive practical advice and guidance from other students who may have encountered similar challenges.
Furthermore, the support seekers can expect access to a range of resources, such as self-help materials, workshops, and referral services if their concerns require professional attention. The aim of this network is to empower and support students in managing their mental health and digital well-being, and to promote a sense of community and mutual support among the student body.
