Berkeley prides itself on our unique community of students that strive to support each other through their graduate education journey. Academically and personally, graduate school can be challenging and having support from your peers can make all the difference. 

Peer Support Providers (PSPs)

Graduate Peer Support Providers (PSPs) meet one-on-one with graduate students at UC Berkeley to provide assistance in navigating the complex processes related to mental health, basic needs, and academia. As graduate students themselves, PSPs provide support to their peers through understanding, experience, respect, and an equity based lens.
