NYSCHA 2015 Student Group Winner
NYSCHA 2015 Student Award: Geneseo Pathways Program
The Geneseo Pathways Program began in Fall 2011. Pathways peer advocates volunteer their time from 8pm to 8am on evenings and weekends to staff an after-hours helpline. Since Fall 2011, peer advocates have responded to over 220 contacts from students seeking support, information, or resources; with most contacts being for students with varying mental health issues.
In addition to staffing the helpline, peer advocates lead training groups to help new students develop skills to become peer advocates for future. Training group leaders explain and model skills, provide trainees the opportunity to practice skills via role plays, and provide constructive feedback to promote skill development.
Handouts from Previous NYSCHA Annual Meetings
The handouts from the sessions are available on the Annual Meeting page of this web site. The handouts are organized by the session in which they were held. We appreciate our speakers’ willingness to share their presentations with us.
