In order to promote a caring and supportive culture on campus, the Wellness and Counselling Centre of the Office of Student Affairs established the ‘uBuddies’ Peer Counselling Network in 2010. The project is aimed at nurturing dedicated non-final-year undergraduate students to serve as competent peer counsellors who are willing to support and share with fellow students.
uBuddies 2020 has kicked start in January 2020. They have completed orientation, adventure training and peer counselling skills training already. Even under the influence of the epidemic, uBuddies are still busy equipping themselves through online training!
uBuddies continue to provide various peer support service for CUHK, such as Dr. Dog at CUHK, CU Tree Hole Facebook Page and Instagram. In February 2020, uBuddies even reached out to the community by helping to prepare and distribute CUHK "homemade" alcohol based handrub to support the underprivileged in combating the COVID-19 outbreak.
