The Resilience Peer Network (RPN) is a collective of UCLA undergraduate and graduate students trained to support fellow students. Our Resilience Peers are trained in active listening and empathic responding; boundaries, privacy, and ethics; applied positive psychology principles and resilience skills; motivational support to reinforce evidence-based treatment for stress, depression, and anxiety; and mindfulness approaches to resilience. More than 300 students have joined RPN for training and support since its inception in early 2016.

In partnership with the Screening and Treatment for Anxiety and Depression (STAND) Program[insert link] offered by the UCLA Depression Grand Challenge, fully trained Resilience Peers, also known as Certified STAND Peers (CSPs), can provide motivational support and encouragement to participants receiving Online Therapy, an internet-based form of cognitive behavioral therapy.  CSPs reinforce concepts taught in the Online Therapy through support groups and one-on-one video chats under close professional supervision.
