BHIP Middle & High School Peer Mentoring Programs

What is the BHIP Peer Mentoring Program?

The Peer Mentoring Program (PMP) is built upon the empirical, theoretical, and practical foundations of the science-based BHIP. Studies have shown BHIP to be effective for middle school and high school students in the normative community.

Going much beyond an initiative, this program has trained mentors in their school who can now provide guidance to their fellow, younger students. Not only are they experienced from such training but also they have lived through your school, social, and extracurricular experiences and are equipped to give you specific tips. See some of our advice in the FAQs below and send questions anonymously to rmhs.bhip@gmail.com and our peer leaders will post answers here!

Nikki Shah, Team Leader RMHS

I am a senior at Richard Montgomery High School. I’ve been part of the BHIP community since 2018 and the importance of promoting mental health and well-being in children is extremely apparent to me. I hope BHIP will inspire the formation of lots of other clubs that will help promote a more mental-health conscious society in the future.

Julia Craig, Club President RMHS

The BHIP program provides incoming freshmen with advice from upperclassmen who have recently gone through the adaptation process in high school. There are many Peer Mentors who have experienced various things, so we're able to offer different perspectives on any issues freshmen may have.
