The team communicates important and currently relevant health information through campus TV, emails, handouts and the university website, especially in the event of a health crisis (eg Swine Flu epidemic, Dengue ,Coronavirus Pandemic) in and around the Christ community

In December every year, the team hosts Apurva to commemorate International Day of Persons with Disabilities on December 3rd. The event is given much publicity and aims to achieve the promotion of equality through diversity and inclusiveness.


Our Main Activities:

  • Provision of immediate medical first aid and assistance on campus. Transport via university ambulance to the nearest recognized hospital/ hospital of the patient’s choice in case it is needed

Our Aim: 

  • to empower these women with basic knowledge on health and nutrition

All of us who’ve been a part of the peer education program would undoubtedly credit our mentors and the course structure with well-deserved praises. But nonetheless how true it is, I want to emphasize on the very fundamental and simplistic ways in which this program might have changed my perspective on life. One thing I can proudly say

My experience with Peer ed classes so far has been very rewarding and productive. The mentors always ensured that the sessions are tailored for us in such a way where we do not feel pressurised and also learn something new in every session. With the ongoing pandemic, these classes have really been the silver lining. Admist online classes, assignment

Peer ed has been the most interactive class we have had in the last semester and one that actually isn't stressful. In fact, it's helped me worry less, overthink less and just focus on doing what I can. The mentor meetings are especially nice, it's the closest thing we have to an actual offline class right now. Turns

At first when Deepa Ma'am approached me to join the Peer Education program at Christ University I was excited but mostly sceptical looking at the end-results they offered since they seemed too good to become true. Undoubtedly having do such a program without physically being present with each other is a pull on all our abilities. However, I

Peer Education has changed the way I approach life and has made me look inwards for all my difficulties. It has helped me introspect better and hopefully, I would be able to implement these positive changes to my fellow peers as well. Thank you for everything."

The pandemic and the lockdown have been torturing for many while a boon for some. I somehow found myself in middle ground back in June. Though I did miss the college and interactions with friends, I looked at this quarantine as an opportunity to heal my “flaws” and evolve into a better individual.
I tried meditation, affirmations, shadow

Life was going pretty much normal until this year. It was like everything turned upside down as soon as the pandemic started. Initially everything was going accordingly but as the pandemic became the new normal, everything came to a standstill. The concept of online classes came into existence which had its own dimension of everything. Life started becoming more

“It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves” - Sir Edmund Hillary I always wanted to be a leader, I wanted to be extraordinary. That’s what brought me to Peer Education.

The pandemic was difficult for all of us. It was like everything just came to a pause, yet everything happening so fast. Online mode was another realm and of course it was really hard to adapt to it. I admit that it was too late till I finally figured out what was going on and how to adjust.

When I gave my interview for the peer education certificate course, I didn't know what to expect. Little did I know then, that it would turn out to be the greatest blessing during this lengthy, exhausting lockdown. The topics discussed helped me reflect on my lifestyle, beliefs and values. It is effortless to get into a whorl of

The pandemic has been overwhelming for all of us. Making the best of the situation, I joined the Peer Education programme which has helped me understand myself better.

During the pandemic Peer Education really made a difference because the quarantine could feel very isolating.But working on oneself  and talking to other peers/ friends made things  relatable and less isolating.

Being a perfectionist at heart, I've always had to struggle with accepting my flaws and my failures. Perhaps this was because I never knew that there were ways to control this.

Peer Education has been one of the sessions I look forward to in  my week because unlike any other sessions, the focus is on ourselves. It has been extremely helpful to have mentors to guide you into being more aware of what and why we feel, think, behave and cope the way we do. Having someone who can

The online peer education classes to me were like sessions where I could voice my problems in a safe space and get answers. It was a place where things I never thought about and things I over think about were discussed to gain more clarity. I really look forward to the few offline classes that might be held

Peer education is a one of a kind experience, where I learnt something that no class has ever taught me; empathy. We did this by delving into the life of a student, understanding the obstacles faced, and learning how to overcome them. By doing so, I explored parts of my own personal life that I previously had not

One of the few things that kept me sane during the pandemic was the Peer Education course by the Center for Counselling and Health Services. The lack of interpersonal communication gave me an opportunity to delve into myself. This introspective process can be overwhelming, but the amazing mentors in the program have steered me in the correct direction. The
