Peer Advocate Liaison (PAL) Program


In the Peer Advocate Liaison Program, LSUHSC student volunteers (PALs) learn about LSUHSC-NO academic resources for Students. PALs are available to help guide students to the appropriate resources for any of the following problems:

  • Relationship or family issues
  • Academic problems
  • Concerns with alcohol or drugs
  • Depression
  • Adjustment to new environments
  • Stress or anxiety

PALs act as temporary liaisons between students and the campus resources that assist them. PALs are not trained for counseling or crisis intervention. When unsure what LSUHSC-NO resource to use, students can ask a PAL representative, which resource might be the most appropriate. To find a PAL volunteer, students can call their Office of Student Affairs or look for nametag holders that say, “Ask me about PALs.” For more information about PALS go to http://www.lsuhsc.edu/orgs/campushealth/pal.aspx
