PEER SUPPORT PROGRAM
82% of Mentors say that being a Mentor improved their quality of life!
90% of Partners recommend the Peer Support Program.
The Peer Support Program offers understanding, emotional, social, and informational support between people who share similar experiences after brain injury.
The Provincial Peer Support Program connects persons with lived experience (the Mentor) with an individual who is living with the effects of acquired brain injury and requires support (the Partner). The program is available to survivors, family members and/or unpaid caregivers.
Mentor/Partner matches are time specific and are made based on similar experiences, needs and personal interests. The program is coordinated through the local brain injury associations across Ontario, making it possible for people to be ‘matched’ province-wide.
