Mount Allison Peer Support (MAPS)
MAPS is an online peer-to-peer forum that students can access through Moodle. On the forum, students are able to anonymously post any questions/concerns they may have about personal or academic issues and receive anonymous advice from their peers, as well as trained moderators. This forum provides students with opportunities to share their past experiences as well as share the valuable lessons they have learned from those experiences.
Common topics on the MAPS forum include: academics, stress and worry, sex, sexuality and gender, relationships, health, alcohol and drugs.
