Peer Health Educator Workshops 

Peer Health Educators (PHEs) are available to run workshops on a variety of health topics. All of the workshops are free, with the exception of the Food That Makes Cents workshop (which is $5 for participants, which covers the cost of the meal).

Here is a list of the workshops offered by the PHEs:

Note: all workshops have undergone a complete overhaul this summer, so enjoy the new and improved options!

Creative Cafeteria:

After a few months, food in the dining hall may get a little boring. This workshop will help your floor discover new meal ideas and help them to stay healthy with an “all you care to eat” mentality.

Food That Makes Cents:

Want to become the next MasterChef on a budget? This workshop will help students learn how to cook healthy and inexpensive meals in our FTMC kitchen and take a break from the dining hall for the night.  Menu option include: Healthy Comfort Foods, Mexican Fiesta and Breakfast for Dinner.

*There is a $5 fee per person for this workshop to cover the cost of food

Creating Perspectives:

In collaboration with Mental Health Awareness Committee (MHAC) and the Peer Support Centre (PSC), Peer Health Educators will help lead a workshop on mental health awareness and anti-stigma education. This workshop will include a variety of activities, discussions and a speaker with a lived experience story.

Sexology 101:

Peer Health Educators will give your floor the sex talk with this fun Jeopardy-style workshop. Myths will be dispelled on topics like sexually transmitted infections, contraceptives and everything else down there!

Drinking Responsibly Initiative at Queen's - DrinQ:

Who doesn’t love a fun game of BINGO and Mocktails? This workshop will test your knowledge of alcohol safety and bust away the myths associated with alcohol at Queen’s. Students will also have the chance to win some great prizes.  

Keep Calm and Self-Care On:

This workshop introduces students to the importance of developing you own self-care plan and provides some tips on how to manage stress throughout university.  Students will also get the opportunity to unwind during this interactive 45 minute session.

Bust Your Stress Away:

Are students on your floor feeling a little stressed? Then book a Bust Your Stress Away workshop! PHEs will visit your floor with a variety of stress busting activities for your floor to have fun with. This workshop is customizable depending on the interests of your floor, but some of the items we include are colouring books, board games, cards, hacky sack and more!

Moving Out 101:

Is it almost time to move out of residence? PHEs are here to help ease any anxiety circulating around your floor! This workshop will help prepare students for moving out of residence and learn more about what it’s like to live with roommates, bills to pay, grocery shop and more responsibilities!
