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!

What can I expect from this program?
You can expect to meet with a friendly, engaged mentor who will help you reflect on your current health and wellness habits and guide you in creating a plan to make changes and set goals so that you can become the healthiest version of you!
How often do I meet with my peer mentor?
Together, you and your peer mentor will decide how often you meet based on your schedules. We recommend meeting with your peer mentor about once a week, but you may decide to meet more or less frequently than that. The minimum you will meet with your mentor is once per month.
