Improving student mental health & well-being

Our Mission

The Support Network empowers college students across the country to create an inclusive community and support each other’s identity, mental well-being, and day-to-day lives through peer-facilitated Weekly Groups and community events.

Our Impact

The Support Network has been partnering with universities and students across the nation to help build peer-to-peer support communities. Research shows that students provide the most potent source of influence on fellow students’ affective and cognitive growth and development during school.
