Peer For You is now welcoming applications for Peer Responders to serve Duke students for next year.
Applications due March 16. Apply now.
We are a student-run resource that provides the space for undergraduate students to reach out for support and referrals in times of struggle. Any Duke student can send an anonymous message to one of our Peer Responders about a struggle or challenge that they are currently facing. The approached Peer Responder will respond to the message within 24 hours.

If you knew one in four of your peers suffered from some form of a particular illnessâan illness that, when left untreated, can make everyday life an overwhelming challenge and even result in deathâwhat would you do? How would you feel if people wrote this illness off as a sign of weakness or were uncomfortable discussing it?
