The service closed on Sept. 6.

The Peer Support Centre (PSC) closed as students returned to campus.

PSC announced its closure through an Instagram post on Sept. 6. The post didn’t indicate when the PSC will reopen or give reasons for the service’s closure.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, the PSC will be closed until further notice. We look forward to serving you and the community again soon!” the post said.

The PSC is an AMS-run service offering undergraduate students confidential and non-judgmental support for free by other students.

AMS Vice-President (Operations) Michelle Hudson and previous PSC Head Manager Amanda Ackehurst didn’t respond to The Journal’s request for comment.

The closure comes after the PSC was open to students over the summer and advertising its services at orientation events. In their announcement, the PSC suggested students access Student Wellness Services and Student Academic Success Services, along with other alternative resources.
