A peer mentor is a resource available to all UMaine students free of charge. You can meet with a peer mentor regularly to discuss your health & wellness habits, identify healthy goals and brainstorm ideas to help you reach those goals. A peer mentor will motivate and support you in becoming the healthiest version of yourself and empower you to draw upon your unique abilities and strengths to achieve success!

We take a Mind, Body, & Spirit approach to health & wellness, believing that these three aspects of a person’s life are intertwined and contribute to their overall well-being. A peer mentor will help you identify goals to improve your physical fitness, nutrition, academic success, time & stress management, your happiness and much more. Everybody can benefit from a peer mentor!
