"At NBCC we recognise that this variety of support is important, as there is a always a spectrum of needs amongst students.”
New Brunswick Community College has six campuses across New Brunswick, and is the latest Canadian institution to launch with TalkCampus. A combination of peer support, machine-learning and innovative design, TalkCampus offers a community of support for a variety of anxieties, isolation and life’s ups and downs, whilst also providing social connection with like-minded students, in a non-judgmental environment.
Justin Stoodley, NBCC’s Manager of Student Services, has said that TalkCampus will provide a much needed option for mental health support, a place that is “always available and right at the fingertips of students”.
“With the addition of peer support provided through TalkCampus, our students will now have access to three layers of support while studying with us, including our existing counselling services and online mental health and wellness program. At NBCC we recognise that this variety of support is important, as there is a always a spectrum of needs amongst students.” - Justin Stoodley
TalkCampus is a global peer-to-peer support platform offering instant support from the ease of a student's phone or browser, 24/7, with real-time moderation and escalation. One of the elements that appealed most to the NBCC team was that TalkCampus will also intelligently alert students to additional support specific to the insitutution, all embedded within the app, and available anywhere a student is based.
“We are incredibly excited to be launching TalkCampus for NBCC students. We know that the community will be an incredible resource for these students and aid them in their success, and that our global offering can go a long way to helping students feel connected, less alone, more hopeful about the future. We are delighted to be welcoming NBCC and their students into our community.” Jamie Druitt, Head of Product, TalkCampus.
