The Reach-out Empower Accept Listen (REAL) team focuses on promoting and nurturing the mental wellbeing of all Cal Poly students through private consultations and group presentations. We are a team of highly trained individuals who hold consultations surrounding mental health. We can also connect students and their peers with resources that support suicide prevention. If you are in need of a non-judgmental, non-discriminatory space to talk, please drop-in or call today to make an appointment. We are here to support each other and want to make a positive difference in your life.


Consultations: Private one-on-one meetings with peer health educators in a comfortable, welcoming environment.

Note: Students may request that a peer joins them in a consultation for their comfort.

Events: Presentations, by request, to groups regarding various mental wellbeing topics.


  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress Management
  • Mental Health Concerns
  • Homesickness
  • How to help a Friend in Need
