Peer-led Support Groups: United Support Network is a community of UIC students coming together to support each other through life’s challenges and connect around life experiences! Through peer-led support groups and monthly social events, we help students build a sense of community on campus and support one another’s mental wellbeing— from the good to the challenging, and everything in between. Celebrating diversity of identity and mental wellbeing, we were created by UIC students, for UIC students.
