GPSN Mentee Sign-Up
The aim of the GPS-N mentorship program is to provide a safe, reliable, and non-judgemental support network for students in Faculty of Medicine Graduate Programs to discuss their challenges that stem beyond the sphere of academic and career goals. Our program focuses on mental health and well-being and serves to complement current academically-focused peer mentorship programs.
As a mentee, you will be paired with mentor who will offer a welcoming environment for you to discuss mental health, wellness, and equity and inclusion issues. This can include navigating student life and managing interactions with administration/peers within their own departments. Our mentors have received training in addressing issues related to EDI (Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) and how to provide a peer support in a mental health crisis. We hope they will provide a safe(r) space for you to find support and engage in dialogue. The mentor will not be able to act as a counsellor/therapist, but rather can potentially serve as an intermediary step towards accessing professional/community resources. Expectations (timing to meet, etc.) for the mentor/mentee relationship will be discussed once you have been matched as they may depend on your needs.
The information provided in this form will remain confidential. It will not be shared to anyone outside of the GPSN Mentorship Program Executives, who will only use the information provided to conduct matches. Information will not be provided to any University administration or faculty. The only exceptions to breeching confidentiality is if you share any of the following information: a planned attempt of suicide, self-harm or harm to others.

OPTIONAL: Please use the text box below to tell us about any areas related to mental health/wellness/equity and inclusion that you may wish to discuss with your mentor (e.g. anxiety, discrimination, etc.). It is important to point out that your mentor will only be able to provide support as a peer mentor, not as a trained therapist. They will, however, be able to direct you to appropriate resources should you need more support. If you're not comfortable you can leave this space blank, however any information you provide will help us match you with an appropriate mentor.
In order to promote anonymity, our default is to match you with a mentor in a different department. Is this your preference?
