Peerzle research from U.C.L.A

The Problem

Your brain (and even your body) can get a lot out of talking through problems. In fact, research from U.C.L.A suggests that putting your feelings into words can diminish the response of the amygdala, a part of the brain responsible (among other things) for emotional responses, including fear, anxiety, and aggression. This is why, as time goes on, you can overcome stress by talking about your experiences with peers.

For example, if you are homesick while at school, your daily life can be emotionally overwhelming. However, as you spend more time at your campus and talk through your issues with peers and friends, these feelings of anxiety and fear of being away from home can start to subside.

Impact

Use Peerzle however you’d like. If you are having a difficult day and want to talk about it, request a chat. If you enjoy the euphoric feeling of helping others, turn on your notifications and join a conversation whenever you receive a match. However, you don’t have to do both.

College can be tough, but you are not alone. Peerzle allows you to work together with your peers to promote a culture of wellness on your campus while breaking down the stigmas and barriers that block people from seeking help.
