The Longhorn SHARE Project is a mental health peer support program in which peer SHARE Support Specialists facilitate supportive communities around shared experiences, engage in drop-in support conversations, lead storytelling circles in student orgs and classrooms, and more. Their goal is to co-create non-clinical, non-hierarchical spaces for peers to experience mutual validation, growth, and genuine connection. Support Specialist recruitment occurs annually in October.
