Chronic Health Mentoring Program

Chronic Health Mentoring Program

The Chronic Health Mentoring Program, which is in its pilot year for the 2015-2016 academic year, is designed to provide a support system to students at Colorado State University who are dealing with chronic medical conditions, including (but not limited to) mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, or other health conditions such as chronic infectious diseases, diabetes, and cancer. The program is based on a peer support idea, where students who have dealt with similar situations serve as mentors for those who need support. Mentees are paired individually with one mentor, who serves as a support system and helps connect their mentee to resources on campus. All program participants also participate in group events focused on themes such as identity, stress management, and community building. The program is a partnership between ASCSU and Resources for Disabled Students (RDS).
