Meet Your Peer Mentors
USA Students who offer hope, support, transparency, and advocacy in order to build
resilience to thrive in our lives
and within our campus community.
I wanted to become a JSSN member in hopes of aiding students through tough times. My goal is to make mental health easy to talk about and reduce the stigma surrounding it!
Hey y’all! My name is Teya Hale. I’m a graduating Psychology major with a minor in Sociology. I joined JSSN to be a part of a more hands on attempt at offering support to my fellow classmates. As Jags, we have to stand together as we try to keep our mental health in check.
Support is a major key to one’s success, growth, and healing. We are all going through the same situations, just at different points in our lives. JSSN seeks to help others know they’re not alone with those situations, and that’s why I am a part of it!
Hello everyone! My name is Leah Reliford. My major is psychology with a minor in philosophy and I am a member of JSSN. I joined JSSN because I know the importance of unity in the jag community. As students, there are many challenges that come with that title. We are here to let you know that you are not alone, we hear you, and we support you.
I am a junior at South majoring in psychology. I enjoy learning about the importance of mental health. I chose to join the JSSN program because I am interested in helping others in any way I can.
I wanted to become a part of JSSN to help people who experience some of the same struggles I face while being in college. Knowing myself and how stressed college makes me, just being there and showing compassion to people in a similar circumstance is unbelievably powerful.
As I grew more involved in extracurricular life at South, my interest in mental health and overall student success became a major priority to me. I have been involved with University Counseling and Testing Center, ever since my junior year as I worked to promote transparency through the advocacy of the Same With Me Movement; you can follow that on Instagram @samewithmeusa. I really have enjoyed my time as a mentor and grown in leadership tremendously! I would love to talk with you; I am as genuine as they come!
My name is Aaron and I’m a freshman studying Biomedical Sciences! The reason I wanted to be a part of JSSN was to connect with more students and be a resource for students in need!
