This event will feature Reina Juarez, PhD (Director, Counseling and Psychological Services, UC San Diego) as a guest speaker and cover the topic of "Peer to Peer Support Strategies for Mental Health Outreach and Engagement for Healthier University Campus Communities." Student peer supporters from all over the country will gather in Tokyo to participate in the mutual training and exchange meetings.
