The College of Idaho Advocate Center is a student-driven department, overseen by the Wellness Center, that is committed to creating a safe, inclusive atmosphere for all members of the campus community through supportive resources & educational programming to promote mental, physical, & academic well-being for all.
Our Advocates are students who engage in extensive training hours and learn from experienced members of our community. They are skilled at helping their peers deal with the stress brought on by the challenges that college life can create.
An advocate is a first-line responder who offers active support during times of stress and trauma. Following the initial intervention, the advocate will meet with a client to create a plan that may include off-campus and on-campus resources. While advocates do not address the content of the trauma or stress itself, they support the client through the recovery or response process. Such support may involve accompanying the client to counseling sessions, medical appointments, or other meetings with professionals.
