ILS COVID-19 PEER SUPPORT TEAM
With reference to the UGC Letter dated 5th April 2020 regarding “Mental Health and Well-being of Students during and after COVID-19″, ILS Law College in collaboration with the Centre for Mental Health Law and Policy ( CMHLP) is pleased to announce the setting up of the ILS COVID-19 PEER SUPPORT TEAM.
A team of 9 students supervised by faculty coordinators and a team of counsellors will be addressing the issues of stress, anxiety and distress faced by the student community of ILS Law College in these hard times. The students’ peer team will undergo an online training session to equip them to render support to their fellow students.
The role of the peer support team is to act as a facilitator between the students and the counsellors/ faculty coordinators and thereby enabling students to identify the psycho-social difficulties faced by them and get professional help.
Students facing any type of stress, anxiety and/or distress can call/mail any member of the Peer Support Team between 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and get help followed by professional assistance. Students may also raise the issues relating to mental health, psychological concerns and well being through an email addressed to email@example.com. The information provided and sought will be kept confidential.
The members of Peer Support team are as follows:
Dr Kaustubh Joag – Psychiatrist, CMHLP
Ms Sharon Ann Sabu – Counseling Practitioner, CMHLP
