PSN is a student-led network passionate about supporting students in their mental health & well-being through weekly peer-facilitated group meetings & events. 

How We Work


What do we do? Our trained facilitators foster an open, empathetic, and respectful group dialogue through engaging with students in support groups. PSN also puts on monthly events that are open to the entire Lewis & Clark student body. The goal of these events is to create community and peer connections through activities with a mental health focus. Past events have included succulent potting, arts and crafts such as collaging, and board game events! PSN also hopes to encourage LC students to seek additional support by providing resources to connect students to healthcare professionals on- and off-campus.

Who We Are

 Our team consists of Lewis & Clark students who are passionate about improving access to mental health care and resources for their peers

PSN Leaders and Directors for Fall 2022

What is a Group Facilitator?

A group facilitator is an LC student who has received training in an annual retreat to peer-facilitate weekly group meetings with members. They have consultations with a mental health professional who works in collaboration with PSN. At these weekly group meetings, group facilitators are responsible for creating an emotionally and mentally accessible atmosphere and an inclusive and engaging dialogue.

Who are directors?

The board of directors is a group of students that are involved in the structural organization of the group. The director roles are: co executive directors, director of operations, director of business development, director of marketing and outreach, and director of facilitator development. They work together to make the club run smoothly!
