NITEP is hosting a new student program that provides resources and ways to be a peer support helper/trainer for mental health and wellness. There is space for interested Aboriginal students to participate, especially in the morning session. Please contact Jessica LaRochelle if you are interested in attending this training workshop. Regards, Jo-ann
