The Health Centre offers a peer health educator program that focuses on healthy lifestyle management for our students. This is a “students-educating-students” program that relates to topics of health and wellness, training and group supervision will be facilitated by the Health Nurse at STFX, the program will launch in September of 2011.
The program provides an effective peer network to encourage, support, and promote healthy living for all students. It seeks to make students aware of the issues associated with unhealthy behaviors through education and up-to-date information, as well as life skills training to assist students in making healthy life-style choices. The philosophy is that students can play a uniquely effective role in encouraging their peers to consider, talk honestly about, seek professional advice, and develop responsible habits and attitudes.
Mentors will be involved in communicating the following health promotion messaging to students:
- Infection Control
- Healthy Relationships
- Stress Reduction
- Sexual Health/Safer Sex Practices/STI
