COPE: Counseling Outreach Peer Educators




COPE hopes to facilitate a strong connection between Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and Holy Cross students through outreach programs designed to increase student awareness of mental health issues and reduce the stigma associated with seeking help. Through direct programming and primary prevention efforts, COPE provides education and resources which seek to promote emotional well-being among Holy Cross students and help them resolve stressful situations when they arise.

Peer educators received specialized training to educate the campus community on emotional well-being. As a peer education group COPE does not engage in peer counseling.
